Hiking the Salève Mountain in France Overlooking Geneva, CHPost 7/9 of Spring Break Travels: April 14th, 2009
On the 2nd week of spring break, David had to work, and so I took the kids on my own on the three-hour drive down to Geneva, to see friends and family and enjoy the francophone part of the country, and my old hometown from age 2 to 17.
The first thing we did was to take the téléphérique (cable car) up the Salève mountain (which is just over the border into France), admire the views of Lake Geneva with the Jet d'Eau, and the region, and then hike down. It took us 1h40 to hike back down. It's my favorite hike in the world, for sentimental reasons as well as the varied terrain. It has meadows, forests, stone steps, steep switchbacks, rocks, streams, and great views. And it's a manageable length.
