... much the scope of the day, got to go, my book is calling me. -- Tali A rather disappointing end to the hike - with the pouring rain and poor visibility up the mountain, it made no sense to attempt today's walk. Instead we took our time in the hotel and had a relaxing breakfast and packed up our backpacks for the last time. ...

... by a challenge we headed up to the glacier. It took about an hour and at the Chalet, we stopped and had lunch - great salad made fresh from the owners garden with goat cheese from the town we had just left. Delicious! As we had come a different route, we had to continue climbing up to Les Grand Dessus and then traverse around the mountain to the col de Balme.

The high point will be the Col de Balme which is supposed to have a funky restaurant for lunch... -- ...

There were a number of switchbacks as we came to the tiny hamlet of Bovine,which is really ...

... then continued our climb to the Grand Col Ferret. Leaving Italy, we scrambled down into Switzerland after our climb of 800 meters. Making our way down we stopped at la peula for lunch of sandwiches and omelettes, until finally getting to Ferret. We caught a bus from Ferret to Orsieres and then on to Lac Champex, our stop for the night at Hotel Belvedere. Food was excellent so off to ...
