We woke to rain and low cloud at Les Chapieux this morning. The weather front was a weak affair though and by the time we descended into Italy from a chilly Col de La Seigne the cloud began to break. This day of the TMB is the longest and the best is to come in the afternoon. Another 600m of up hill gives the finest views of Monte Bianco above Val Vani. Beautiful clear skies by mid afternoon as we traversed the meadows to Col Cheruit. This is one of the finest days on the TMB and one to savour. Weather looking fantastic for the rest of the week and beyond.
