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. We've all been relaxing Ryan on his phone and I spending an enjoyable day reading on the kobo. Mom and dad have just been walking around. That ...

... by a challenge we headed up to the glacier. It took about an hour and at the Chalet, we stopped and had lunch - great salad made fresh from the owners garden with goat cheese from the town we had just left. Delicious! As we had come a different route, we had to continue climbing up to Les Grand Dessus and then traverse around the mountain to the col de Balme. This all took a lot longer than originally planned, but we finally made it to the col. We had ...

Spent the night in Trient - not exactly the same quality of hotel or view from my window as before, but the constant cow bells were a nice change.. don't these things sleep?

The high point will be the Col de Balme which is supposed to have a funky restaurant for lunch... -- ...

Hiking till the cows come home

This was the more difficult hike with an elevation gain ...

... 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 ...

    Located right next to the railway station, the hotel is well located, and within walking distances to nursery ski slopes for lessons. Very accessible to the rest of the Chamonix ski slopes by bus.
