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. ...

Our final destination was the Col de Forclaz where we checked into the only hotel and organized our rooms - shared washroom and shower again. Not too difficult a day, but different scenery and interesting walk through the forest and farms (with many cows). I swear I think they are following ...

Sean had noticed we had a 2014 permit for something and wasn't sure what it was, we were it hoping it was the right thing and that someone else had purchased it who had used the car! Approached the border, stopped the Swiss guy checked it and waved us through so all good! We passed several regions but the one I liked because of the name was the Emmenthal region - of course cheese ...
