Cormet de Roseland

Albertville to Bourg St Maurice

We decided to head up the Cormet de Roseland toward Borg St Maurice.

Part way up the climb (just past the col) we stopped at a restaurant for wonderful soup. This cat sat on my lap for almost an hour. I tried to put her in my pannier to take home!

Looks like more climbing...

We came around the corner to a deafening sound of cow bells. Everyone of them had a bell! Ring, ring, ring, ring!


Yes, we have indeed climbed for 40 km!

But this is our reward. This is why we came to the alps. Look at the way the road twists and turns.
