What a week of superb weather. Yesterday and today have been hot and despite the forecasts predicting cloud and thunderstorms during the day, it was virtualy blue skies all day for Thurs & Friday. We had a wonderful day on Monte Saxe yesterday, with a strong group of walkers we had plenty of time for rests in the hot sun. My group agreed with me that Monte Saxe is the finest day on the TMB. Today we left the fab Bonatti Refuge and over the col Grand Ferret. Still lots of snow on the Swiss side of the col.
