TMB Day 2

Day 2 - Les Houches to Refuge le Truc

Day 2 - Les Houches to Refuge le Truc

The first bit was easy; teleriphique from Les Houches to Bellevue and then a descent to the suspension bridge across the meltwater from the Glacier de Bionassay

An hour later, from the Col de Tricot, you look down on the descent to the Chalets Miage, 600m below

Miage - an hour or so later

Another half hour or so of climbing brings you to the delightful, but basic Auberge le Truc

No showers or even hot water and no electric light
