Refuge des Mottets, Vallee des Glaciers, France photo

Back onto the Tour du Mont Blanc trail. The last stop if going anti-clockwise or the first stop if going clockwise in France, is this little spot hidden away in the Vallee des Glaciers. The road stops here and the only way onto Italy is by foot. Depending on which way you go it’s another couple of hours to reach the Col de la Seigne that straddles France and Italy. Once again we were blessed with exceptional weather. 1/80 @ f10 37mm ISO 200

Alp Bovine view near Champex , Switzerland photo

On the Tour du Mont Blanc there are many places in the remote mountains to stop and have a coffee or tea. Alp Bovine is actually a working dairy farm high above the much busier and industrious Rhone valley. Like everyone else we stopped here for a drink and to soak in the view, not to mention catch our breath after a lengthy climb from Champex. 1/100 f11 85mm ISO 100
