In the South part of the French Alps

This summer (2006), we walked an other part of the GR 5 (long distance footpath from the north sea Netherlands to the mediteranean sea, Nice, France) We begin in Claviere where we stopped last year ( see other pages about Vanoise) and go farther south to Larche (Italian border) in 8 days sleeping in mountain hut (Gîte d'étape)

    Merci d'avoir visité mes quelques souvenirs de ce coin tranquille de Cantabria. Briançon semble bien sympa!

    This looks like a spectacular place, though quite a lot of elevation gain and loss too.

    Wonderful scenery, interesting places to stay. Why don't you add the French version to your tips, then I could learn some French.
