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.

My Garmin, which is set to Auto Pause at speeds under 5kmph, was beeping at me a lot. Very irritating until I changed the settings at the top of Joux Plane. I was taking it easy on the descents as the road surface was not entirely smooth, and building my ...
