My 35th Tour du Mont Blanc underway with a very fun group, comprising 7 folk from Australia, 2 USA, 2 Israeli guys and one person from Ireland and another from Finland. The unsettled weather is continuing and our first two days of the trek was in very low cloud and rain. The group were full of excitement despite the non Alpine weather. Lots of interest despite lack of views - wild flowers, climbing ibex and whistling Marmottes to keep us going. We must be in for a better August?
