... hardcore adventure. This is where people with skis, ropes, ice axes and crampons go. They go to summit Mont Blanc, or to ski down the mountain, or to go climb stuff. Pretty impressive considering it's a white out and -5 degrees Celsius. They were also doing some work on the platforms here. There was a small excavator working on the side of a massive slope in these conditions. It was pretty nuts! We then returned down the mountain ...

The other thing that stands out is the abundance of huge flags adorning the cities bridges and buildings of note and ...

... we then set off to the Gorges du Fier near Lovagny. They were meant to have a waterfall but the water level was way too low. You will see us on the platform in the pics and the flood meter shows the water rising to about 6 meters above where we were standing.
