On the Tour de Monte Rosa route
On a much better day than forecast, I wandered up on a GOOD path through shady woods to the Turlo pass on the Tour de Monte Rosa route - a revisit, but not running this time! I'm now in tourist land, which is why the path is magnificent and so much easier. After lunch at the pass I bounded down (feeling better!) to Alagna: lots of people around on holiday, with a more international mix and some speaking English. I've now set off back up to the Loen pass; maybe I'll get to the top today, but that would amount to 3,100m of ascent and I haven't achieved that with my pack in a single day, so maybe not. Anyway, Courmayeur in 5-6 days looks on.
