Chamonix :. Lac Blanc + La Ferme des 3 Ours

above: I love how toddlers can be easily entertained with very few toys (with some dried pasta, empty yoghurt cups and egg cartons, not to mention pinecones we picked up in the forest). The children's books I got from the small flea market in Vallorcine (paid 1€ for 3), and they are so cute I'll have to make a separate post later.

below: our last hiking day was also the foggiest. We had planned to hike to Lac Blanc, one of the most popular hiking trails in Chamonix, and despite the fog we went ahead with our plan. It was so foggy we couldn't see past 2 or 3 m ahead sometimes, but this trail is one of the most well marked so it 's quite impossible to get lost.

We made it there in a bit less than 2 hours, and were almost done with our picnic by the side of the lake when it started to rain. We took shelter in the Refuge where after some hot tea and a huge and flavorful slice of Tart aux Myrtilles decided to head back.

Later that night we walked to La Ferme des 3 ours for our dinner, and it was possibly one of the best meals of the whole trip.
