... and reach the top of over 2000m. At the top they have a colony of marmots, the mascot of the alps. They are a ground squirrel or groundhog. We walked the final part to the top and were awarded with amazing views.

We finished another long day, from Champex, Switzerland. This is the northern most point on the TMB trail. About 3 hours into our hike, in the middle of a cow pasture high above the valley we encountered the Alp Bovine cafe! It was almost at the high point of our hike today. We had a sandwich and.
