In Provence, Honoring a Poet at 6,263 Feet – New York Times

http://www.nytimes.com/2006/07/30/travel/30explorer.html

A recreation of Petrarch’s famous hike, which necessarily results in a little disappointment and absolutely no philosophical epiphanies whatsoever. I especially love the “Petrarch didn’t mention this” complaints about wind, temperature or trail difficulty – as though, to the author, the great humanist was nothing more than a second-rate travel writer.
