Summer has returned to the Valley as the weather breaks clear and warm. We decide to do something a little different by driving back down the valley past Servoz and come back in to the other side of the central massif toward the tourist town of St. Gervais. Mont Blanc will be blocked from view but we should be able to glimpse some new panoramas on the other side of the mountain.
Hamlet of La Frasse above the village of Les Contamines-Montjoie is our starting point.
Path signs show the way!
Panoramic view on the upward climb.
Ah, the simple life. But what a view!!!
Our Lady of the mountains!!
View towards Glacier de Miage.
Summit of Mont Truc.
Panoramic view towards the village of St. Gervais.
Brief visit to the village of Les Contamines-Montjoie at hike’s end.
