The Difference between North and South
..... sides of chalet rooves is so marked in the spring. This is my friend arriving at her chalet on the top of the Col de La Croix. What a fabulous walk in the deep snow, in the silence of the forest, to come out on this ridge. It is a very old shepherd's hut that has been progressively converted from generation to generation into a family chalet. In the winter it is only accessible on skis.
As it is International Women's Day, I present you Claudine. As a very competent guide, Claudine performs the role often thought of as "men's work". Extra photo to see the depth of the snow on the rooves of the farm.
