... sound of the cowbells as we pass through pastures. I keep telling her, well "we need more cowbells"!
We planned to treat ourselves to a ski lift ride down the mountainside and into Cormayeur. We heard that the trail was extremely steep and tiring at the end of an 11 mile day. But, bad luck, it was Sunday, and the lift stopped running just before we got to it, 3 pm. The trail down seemed ...
