As the fascinating blue waters of the Plan d'Amont lake (upstream of the
dam) wink at you, Râteau d'Aussois and Pointe de l'Échelle watch over you,
unphased, lost in contemplation.
Why stop now when things are going so well? Keep going till you get to the
Fournache torrent and listen carefully... Can you hear that whistle, echoing
through the valley? That's Lady Marmot, announcing your arrival to the rest
of her crew.
Adventure is calling you and you feel like spending a night at La Fournache
Or maybe at the Plan Sec refuge. It could be a good idea to start with a
meal there, so as to scout out the place. Just imagine waking up amid those
remote alpine pastures and imposing rocky mountains!
But, for now, you can just settle down on the soft grassy slopes and take your
time lazing in the sunshine, as you're returning via the chairlifts.
