The Trient Glacier 
Fresh snow above 2000m
Mont Blanc from Col de Balme 
Aiguille Verte
Trient Glacier from Les Tseppes 
Aiguillete de Posettes
The temperatures dropped last night and there was rain falling in Trient. A Fresh dusting of snow above 2000m this morning with completely clear skies.  Cold and clear, how I like it. Todays section of the TMB climbs over the Col de Balme which marks the border crossing back into France. Most groups and even Tour leaders just out to take the shortest,  most direct Route over the col. There are actually 3 varients of this leg on the TMB. The finest one running via Les Tornays and underneath the Western slopes of Croix de Fer. The views from the tiny alp of Les Tseppes give stunning views across to the Trient Glacier. I hardly see anyone use this route,  they don't know what they are missing! The views from the Col de Balme where stunning, Mont Blanc & the Aiguille Verte standing tall above the Chamonix Valley. The days not over. The continuation over the Aiguillete de Posettes give even more stunning views of the Mont Blanc Range.
