The difference between my walk earlier in the week at 700m to 1,000m was quite different to yesterday’s walk from Evolène at 1,400m to La Forclaz at 1,700m. The flowers are at least 2 weeks behind and, perhaps as a consequence, the butterflies were very thin on the ground. Nevertheless I managed to spot one or two ‘new’ ones (for this season anyway) for you to enjoy. 👍😊
I was also amazed to see how much snow there was on what was the cross-country skiing piste, near Les Haudères. It’s in the shade for most of the day, but nevertheless it’s still around 2ft (60cm) thick in places. (See pic 24).
