BOVINE ROUTE, WELCOME COVER
Penultimate dsy on the TMB with an 'easier day' on The Bovine route. For me this is the least interesting day on the trek around Mont Blanc but it was a welcome relief to be in the trees and shade for much of the dsy. The lack of mountain views was compensated by some lovely wildlife in the treecover, including Nutcracker & Red Squirral. Of course the name of the route comes from the numerous beards of specific cattle, The Herens Cow.
