Cabane de Prafleuri Walk

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.

    • Thanks. The forecast is very good for the next 3 days as well (like 26 degrees here in Evolène – which means 30 something in the Rhone valley). So I’m looking to find some new locations to post. E.g. on Wednesday I’m popping down the road to see the Tour de France, which is going through Martigny. I hope I see more than just a blur !
