Gl de la Lee Blanche in the Italian Alps

The Tour Du Mont Blanc is a 170 km circular hike around the tallest mountain in the Alps.
Starting in France the track passes through both the Swiss and the Italian Alps before returning back to France. The spectacularly placed Rifugio Elisabetta is located on the side of the hill next to the GL (Glacier) de lee Blanche. On this particular day the storm clouds were gathering!
