Yesterday we bade a very fond farewell to Katie and Fergus, our honeymoon couple, who had walked over 80 miles during their week staying with us ! Only a few hours later Matt arrived, another keen walker. He and I had been to the top of the Barrhorn (@3,610m) together a few years ago.
Looking for something slightly different, we decided to drive around to the Dixence dam (the largest gravity dam in the world you’ll remember) to do a circular walk over the Col des Roux to the Cabane de Prafleuri. Some friends and I may be staying there in September, so it was a good opportunity to check it out. As you’ll see from the photos, there was still quite a lot of snow around.
