Day 8- The end of the circle

... 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. ...

A long day

The day started out pretty normal with clouds threatening and the odd drop of rain. Our goal today was to head over into France once again via the col de Balme, on the border of France and Switzerland. Well me made it, but not quite as planned... 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 ...

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 ...
