At the end of 2019, my husband and I uprooted ourselves from Idaho and moved to the German Alps. When the pandemic hit, the hours we worked significantly reduced. With our newly found free time, we decided to get out and hike our local trails. 

Eventually, it turned into a goal of hiking 50 peaks by the end of the year. Well, we reached our goal and some more. I enjoyed it so much as I pursued another 50 mountain peaks again in 2021 and 2022 across Germany, Austria, Switzerland, and Italy. Here are some of the best views we’ve seen over the past three years.

As someone on a small island, mountains always astound me how beautiful they are...we only have hills.

If I saw this...I'd be willing to die at that very moment for experiencing such beauty.

One of my favourite places to hike. The after-hike pizza and gelato in Cortina were the best.

Must be wonderful to live beside such beauty and wonder! It's inspiring and amazing you got to get closer to nature and chose to make the best out of the pandemic by being in the great outdoors instead of cooped up inside. I wish we had trails and mountains like this
