Woke at 7am to our church bells but had a quiet start as we did not have to meet till 10am. Blue skies and warm.

John cycled into town this morning and managed to pick up a walking map. We started our walk just outside the campsite and headed up through woods on what in winter would be the ski pistes. We passed a couple of ski lifts on the way. At the top of the valley, we headed over the saddle and trekked steeply downhill to a lovely open valley area which had picnic tables and a refuge. After lunch, we climbed up through ...
