Mondays are best…

In the mountains!

looking towards Le Luisin

Fluffy white clouds hover over the mountain peaks; the temperature is cool, but not cold – ideal for walking; there’s no one else on the paths; the birds are chirping their little heads off. Imagine, I woke up in a bad mood and here we are after a good walk almost euphoric.

cairns are very popular

Many rewards this morning as for the first time in two years I felt able to hike back up to the avalanche retainer (last year there were simply too many sprained ankles and working back up to a half hour was doing well: this morning it was an hour and a half – half of which was uphill); lots of insects out and about and the best reward of all: a mouthful of summer!

Some Mondays are simply perfect.
