The summer season out in The Alps seems to come round earlier every year! Can't quite believe we are slready nearing the end of June. The first trips on the Tour du Mont Blanc are the ones I enjoy the most. With the trail quieter than the main high summer season and with lots of wonderful flowers all across the meadows, it's a delight. Early season also has the reminents of the winter snows lingering on the cols. This year has seen more snow than usual, it's also been a poor Spring in the Chamonix area. My group of 12 this week have been lucky though. We are enjoying some lovely hot weather and blue skies. We had a drizzly first day with low cloud over the Col de Bonhomme but todays section over the Col de la Seigne was stunning. There were loads of Marmots running all over the Utslian sude of the col, wonderful to see them scurrying across the snow. This season I am working for a great company based in Australia. RAW Travel. My fun group of Antipodeans had never walked in snow before so this is a real novilty, of course I love it too :)
