Fall holidays (2)

 
 
Continuation of these few days of relaxation and discovery…
 
 
1. To descend from Mont-Cenis to Italy, VivaLaVida discovers a trail, an old border road, some passages of which are spectacular.
 

 
 
2. Passage near the pretty little lake of Roterel…
 

 
 
3. … as the sky clears.
 

 
 
4. The larches are already gorgeous with their yellow-orange hue…
 

 
 
5. Turns…
 

 
 
6. Another small lake, Arpon Lake, just after the Italian border.
 

 
 
7. We make a little stop for the lunch…
 

 
 
8. … near a pretty mountain pasture already closed this season.
 

 
 
9. While waiting for the grocery store to open – it is closed at nap time – Emile improves his cycling technique! 🙂
 

 
 
10. We take the direction of the upper valley of the Claree via the Col de l’Echelle (Ladder Pass).
 

 
 
11. Wake up at the end of the road on a beautiful fall day ideal for a mountain walk.
 

 
 
12. At 5 years old, Emile is a good walker, 5 or 10 miles uphill doesn’t frighten him!
 

 
 
13. Climb to Long Lake in the midst of the fall colors.
 

 
 
14. Arrival at the lake where the temperature hardly exceeds 32°F.
 

 
 
15. Immaculate tranquility…
 

 
 
16. Break sheltered from the strong North wind.
 

 
 
17. Lac Long in a setting of blueberries reddened by autumn.
 

 
 
18. Meeting with a beautiful cricket a little numb by the cold.
 

 
 
19. Going back down to VivaLaVida
 

 
 
More soon… 🙂

      Comme toi, l’automne à ma préférence lorsqu’il s’agit de découvrir de nouvelles contrées montagnardes…

      Je ne sais pourquoi mes emails annonçant une mise à jour mènent aux pages en anglais. Si tu préfères les découvrir en français, il te suffit de cliquer sur le petit drapeau en haut de page… 😉
