Up and about in Javerne

Well, autumn is here. After waking up to a lovely 15 degrees centigrade a couple of days ago even I had to concede that the seasons have turned, and switch on my heating.

At least autumn is good for hiking: Here are a few photos of my recent trip to the Cauldron de Javerne:

A most lovely and clear day. To begin with, the air was quite crisp, but the sun still retains a bit of heat around midday.

The cauldron is down on the left (and climbing up directly to the ridge was not as fast as I thought it would be):

Then, the fog came.  Of course.

But contrary to last time, it cam, and went. Soon the sky was all blue again, as I am pointing out here.

And I was treated to this most excellent sea of clouds (click to embiggen):

Last but not least, here is the GPS-track. Because I need to justify my electronic toys.



  1. Gorgeous. It looks like a wonderful place to wander about.

  2. Yes, it was. But soon there'll be snow all over the place, and I still have no snow-shoes. Stupid winter!
