EARLY START TO BEAT THE HEAT
Final col, Col de Balme
Approaching the col from Trient
Croix de fur
An hazy looking Mont Blanc from the col
Final day of this TMB and we had an early start to beat heat. The easiest day of the trek leaves Trient and heads over the Col de Balme back into the Chamonix Valley and France. Finished by mid day and not too hot. That is until you are back in Chamonix town and nudging 30 degree centigrade again. Well done to my group of 12 folk this last week or so. Coped admirably in the sizzling heat. More of the same temps next week and sunshine once more.
