Cabana du Trient (3170m) to Champex, 3hr 20min -1680m 9.9km
The day started with a lay in as breakfast was at 6:45! A light dusting of snow out side came down overnight and at sunrise it was -8c, a nice summer trek.
The first part of today’s walk started on the glacier around the col d‘Orny, then down the side flank of the high path to Grand Plans at 2194m, from here we took the comfort of the chair lift down to the village of Champex.
Lac du Mauvisin to Cabene de Chanrion, 4hr 25min +1470m 10.4km
After taking a taxi from Champex to the damm at lake Mauvisin, it was all up hill to our next hut, with beautiful scenery all around, changing weather all the time, and a doggy stomach from coffee and cheese flan scoffed down to quickly. The Chanrion Hut is combined of the old part and a very new side building, made of reflecting Aluminium on the out side that blends in perfectly with it reflecting the tones surrounding it.
Finally reaching the hut, for once we has a bit of sun to sit on the terrace for a well earned beer!
Chris, Sarah, Roy and Annika blogging around to keep in touch with family and friends all around.
