On her first full day here we took her up on the téléphérique. On our way to the top we happened to ride in a cabin with Bob from Telluride
Wiggy had a great opportunity to go out on the mountain with Colin on a day that he was photographing the world's most renowned "speed flyer" for an article he has been writing and will be published in the New York Times, hopefully coming out this Saturday (keep your eyes peeled for the article online or in hardcopy!). She assisted him with setting up for photos as François (speed flyer) leaped off the top of high mountain peaks with his small chute and skis, to then swoop downward, continuing in motion as he touched down briefly to ski a patch of snow on a different peak, then back into the air again to repeat the same.
On a different day, when Seth was off skiing/climbing some crazy peak with Mattieu, I took Magan to the Col du Lautaret for a tour to the Col de Laurichard. We were blessed with blue skies and warm temps. For her last day, she and I drove down for a day of shopping in Grenoble, before she took the train the next morning to Amsterdam for her flight back home. She is now off to Alaska for six months of work in Fairbanks working for a family that races and breeds sled dogs. We miss her already, as does one other British La Grave local, who we will leave unnamed!
