... caught a local train to Chamonix proper and checked back into the Grand Hotel des Alps, our original starting point, where we were repatriated with our luggage.

The day started out pretty normal with clouds threatening and the odd drop of rain.

... hot in the sun wearing shorts, sunglasses & sunscreen & then shivering in all our warm gear, all the changes came & were not isolated to any one area. Brendan led us on a 5 klm walk on a ridge that had us cross ice,snow,rocks,dirt,grass and mud. Paths that were definate & well marked & other parts that were very steep with sheer drops & really difficult to tell where to step next. Not the ...
