Walking on the Aiguillette des Posettes

Beautiful day today, so we decided to go for a bit of a walk..  Up the Aiguillettes des Posettes.

Starting off at the Vallorcine railway station, the path leads upwards past old farms, under the cable car and into the forest…

Emerging on the ski piste not far from the top lift station.  Great views looking back at the Emosson dam.

 It was a late lunchtime when Helen and I made it up to the Col de Posettes – the first time I’ve been there without snow on the ground.. The landscape is familiar yet different.  The view of Grands Montets and the Mont Blanc is superb…

Helen:  Come on… lets go..
Leighton:  Hang on – I just want to photo the view…
Helen: Screw the view..  I need food.
[spluttering gasps of horrified shocked astonishment from the British walkers on the Col admiring the said view!!]…
