Valmeinier - Lac Curtalès

Second day of our trek in the hills of Valmeinier in Savoie region. Destination: Lac Curtalès. About 4 times the distance of Lac Vert (last post), through absolutely breathtaking scenery. The whole trip takes a good part of the day, and parts of it are risky (you can start a rock slide if you don't step carefully) and it's strenuous for out-of-shape middle aged folk like us. But the experience is memorable. For large parts, you have the experience of being alone in a rocky wilderness, especially if there aren't other hikers around - which there aren't because the crowds prefers the shorter and easier Lac Vert trek.
