Wednesday, Oct. 05. Our first hike is a trail up toward the nature reserve of Aiguille des Roches Rouges high up the valley near the village of Tre-Le-Champ. We spent the morning shopping in Les Houches (SuperU….we love you!!) and generally getting ourselves oriented. Therefore we don’t start the hike until early in the afternoon.
Nevertheless, it should serve as a good “tune-up” hike and test our ability to handle the altitude as well as our conditioning.
Panoramic view from trail.

Half way up the trail we spot a sure-footed female bouqetin.
Here she is again with calf.
Baby bouquetin. Ain’t he cute??
