FINAL TOUR DU MONT BLANC 2016
Rob and Mont Blanc
After lunch napping
The long 1500m descent from Le Brevent
Chamonix from Le Brevent
Where has the summer gone? September already and the first day of my final Alpine trek this season. Tour du Mont Blanc number 54 underway with a fine group of 8 folk, all from Australia. Starting off on the Brevent in stunning weather. With the first hour we spotted 3 ibex near the Col du Brevent. Still hot conditions despite Autumn knocking on the door. Looks set to be wonderful weather for the next few days at least.
