A Diversion

Yesterday turned out to be a long day because I carried on to the next hut, the Refuge Fournache.  It was a brilliant afternoon, with a strong wind, white horses on the lake, a vibrancy in the atmosphere and a wonderful contrast between sun, cloud and the shale-like mountains.  I intended to climb the Dent Parrachée today, but there was too much stonefall so instead I followed a great path traversing the mountains and returned to the Fournache hut tonight.  Again, the weather today was amazing, windy with clouds constantly forming and evaporating.  I'm hoping to do the mountain tomorrow if I get a good night's sleep.
