We just completed the Tour du Mont Blanc, an 11 day, roughly 168km hike from Les Houches, France through Italy, Switzerland, and back into France. We don’t have a lot of time to post pics and comments now as we are still on the road for another couple of weeks before we move home, but we thought we would quickly post some of our favorites.
We took an alternate route on day 2 past Col des Fours, the highest point along our tour at 2665m.

The one photo we have of our hiking buddy Carl, a British Mountain Guide, whom we walked with for a day or two. He is on vacation from guiding but ended up on the mountain trekking and climbing anyhow.

I took a morning walk at about 6:30am from Refuge Bellachat and saw 4 Chamois. You can seen 2 in this picture.
