First Tour of Mont Blanc trip this season and the trail still as much snow around the cols, of which there are many. There is still over 2 metres of snow on the Col de Bonhomme- Croix de Col de Bonhomme which was spectacular on Wednesday. The Col de la Seigne yesterday was also well snowed up on the Italian side. It's been quite cool with the Fohn wind bringing a cold spell. The Monte Saxe ridge was glorious with a riot of flowers. Small size group this week with 7 folk from USA , Canada, Australia and England. Half way through 1st trip.
