French Alps and Hiking by Riley
It was lovely staying in the French Alps which borders Italy and Switzerland. We stayed in a small town called Verchaix. We stayed on the bottom floor of a house. We had wonderful hosts named Benedicte and Boris.
They had 3 small adorable children. The house was on the side of a mountain and the back yard was a large hill that Piper and I made a waterslide on. The next day we went on the most beautiful hike in the world.
It was called Sixt Fer a Cheval. The trail followed a river in a valley between two large mountains. Once we started our hike we saw a snake! It made us all jump. It was perfect weather for a hike because it was sunny and warm.
We hiked for about an hour and then we found a perfect place to eat lunch. It was along the river. After lunch we found this huge waterfall and we had to jump across a river to get to the base of the falls. We climbed up to the rocks about 3 meters away from the waterfall.
We played around for about a half hour trying to get closer and closer to the waterfall. Finally it was time to turn around. When we got home we decided to watch Nemo! What a great day!
We stayed in the Alps for 3 days and then went to Switzerland to meet friends. Then we decided to come back to the beautiful area. See you soon, Riley
