A long weekend hiking in the French Alps.
4 days ― September 2019
With summer fast disappearing, Oj and I escaped to Samoens for a long weekend of hiking and charcuterie.
Day 1 #
A pleasing hike up the Gorges des Sales to the Refuge de Sales, before doubling back up much higher to a great lookout over the valley.
Day 2 #
For our second day we choose an easier route - driving to Joux Plane at 1691m, walking to La Borgeoise, then north to Pointe d’Angolon.
Day 3 #
Following the Giffre stream uphill to the source, we got to ‘Le Bout du Monde’ (The end of the world) - which rewards with a spectacular view back through the valley.
