Alpine walks and free Tibet

The weather in the Alps has been stunning recently with occasional thunder storms to clear the air. Kathy is heading off tomorrow morning to start the 4 day Tour Du Dents Du Midi trek with 6 lovely ladies from the Lake District. The walk circuits this mountain range taking in views over the Rhone valley and lake Geneva. They will be staying in Gites overnight and the whole walk is in Switzerland. For more details on this walk see the Team Ascent website under Alpine walks. Kathy and Michelle spent 3 days previously on part of the Tour du Mont Blanc walking the section between Les Houches and Courmayeur. Above and left are views looking from the Italian side over towards the Mont Blanc range.

In the meantime back in chamonix Free Tibet demonstrations are going on and the group of protesters are planning to circuit the Tour du Mont Blanc, already many of the huts are flying the Free Tibet flag.
