... the tunnel cost E 28.00 for a motorbike and E 42.00 for a car.
Arriving at Allevard, I was delighted to meet Christian and Suzanne, friends of Liz and owners of the Tour du Treuil. Due to patchy rain at the time,the attached photos where taken on a sunny day last year.After spending the night at the Tower, I left (in the rain again) for Geneva and Lausanne to complete the end of my 4000km ...
... out some clothes and hung them out on a clothesline in a super windy spot overlooking a glacier.
Dinner was a terrific risotto dish and pork in a cream sauce. Finally no cheese (were not in France anymore!). We sat across from an older British woman who was walking the whole hike by herself!
We had private room for oursleves which was a treat and we slept like the dead.
... and most of them are passing us on the trail.. grrrr.
We've established a routine now of sharing a nice cold beer at the end of each day's long hike. Dinner was excellent - very tender beef and a nice custard for dessert. We sat next to a French woman who tried very hard to use her limited English, which was endearing but made for a very slow tortured conversation. I ended up going to get my smart phone which had a translation app (very handy!).
Lots of steep uphill today, finally reaching one of the highest points of the whole trip, the Col du Bonhomme
At one point Barbara thought she was being attacked by a bull, but after scrambling up a rock to escape it turned out to be a cow with horns in a frisky mood!
Views back down the valley have been stunning. Thankfully the weather has stayed sunny but cool (upper 60's?)- perfect for hiking. ...
... This is a blessing in disguise, since we have some time to rest our legs.
The hotel was ok, but in need of facelift. Dinner was mediocre - Polenta dish and alphabet soup (!) Met three guys from Scotland and talked about the upcomng vote for Scottish independence. Strolled around a very interesting outdoor art gallery.
