    Today was the final day of our tour, but sadly we could not hike due to pouring rain. Luckily we are at a nice hotel in an actual town (Charmonix) which is a good place for a day off. We've all been relaxing Ryan on his phone and I spending an enjoyable day reading on the kobo. Mom and dad have just been walking around. That is pretty much the …

    Left Geneva around 2pm and arrived in Chamonix about an hour and a half later. Took the ChampExpress bus with a friendly driver originally from Ireland. They can do 130 on the highways here but also have permanent photo radar on the roads. All the locals know their locations, so just visitors are caught these days. It is pretty overcast with …

After leaving the Col de la Forclaz we headed towards the hamlet of le Peuty, but somewhere along the way we missed a turn and ended up in Trient - this was after a fair bit of downhill... Up we go again and finally ...

    Spent the night in Trient - not exactly the same quality of hotel or view from my window as before, but the constant cow bells were a nice change.. don't these things sleep? Today we make our way back to France over the Arete des Posettes, a whale backed ridge - supposed to be a gentler day of only 15 kilometers and 2500 ft elevation gain and loss. The high point will be the Col de Balme which is supposed to have a funky restaurant for lunch... -- ...

    Hiking till the cows come home

    A travel blog entry by glazer on Aug 09, 2014

    Woke up this morning to rain.... But it soon stopped. We were planning on doing the Fenetre d'Arpette, a dramatic hike over the pass with excellent views. After speaking to a local,they convinced us that due to the weather, the Arpette was a bad idea - visibility was poor and there were some areas that could be difficult especially if one did not have good maps and gps. This was the more difficult hike with an elevation gain ...
