Day 24, Maljasset

Day 24, Friday September 2
Ceillac to Maljasset

A very good day of hiking. Up to the col Girardin at 2706m. Good weather. As seems usual, some steep climbing at the start, but unlike the previous two days, today had good high level walking, the best since Briançon. Two alpine lakes and vast open area above the tree line. The last part of the descent into Maljasset was very steep on a crumbly path and quite slow, but worth it.

Interesting people at dinner with conversations going on in four languages.

The photo is at the col. Windy.

The weather in the next few days looks uncertain; we may have some rain.
