Monte Caly

With the English weekend, we spent Sunday afternoon hiking up to Monte Clary, which is the other half of the Les Gets resort. Since there had been a warm spell, the roads were clear enough to get up to this little village on the ridge and walk the rest of the way. the village had maybe 10 houses and one bar/restaurant. It was not a bad hike at all, and the sun was out and it was pretty warm. once again, this is only a handful of the photos i took.

Not a bad view to star the hike off, actually I don't know why i went any higher.
The whole family, John, Dorothy, Jo, Simon, Sarah, Jasper & Cleo
Jasper & Cleo running amok
Simon's dad John very content with his Sunday afternoon
Simon and Jasper
Simon and Jojo
Once again, why did we keep walking
Oh by the way, all this terrain is apparently skiable in the winter, so cheers. here's a bench marked for the snow, so you can have a nice view halfway down the hill
Don't remember what we were talking about here, but I'm assuming we were looking for the Chalet on the other side of the valley
And I have no idea what was in that direction
Admiring the view again
Simon & Sarah, same thing
It wasn't exactly the easiest hike ever
Once again, enjoying what you've left behind
Always pointing somewhere
Meanwhile the dogs are searching for moles and mice, they caught one in the end, sorry i wasn't close enough to get a good shot though
Little water for the dogs, but I'm pretty sure that snow dehydrates you, oh well
Jasper and Cleo being pretty stoked on the break
This is where they all gave upSimon and I kept going
this is as close to the to pas we got, we were 1 crest away, and about 300 ft. below the summit
Sarah and Jo, found them where we left them
The photographer has to have his picture taken
Newt and Harold's going international, didn't you get the memo?
Glamour Shot, I forgot to say we brought a windmachine with us, or I could crack a joke about Sonic the Hedgehog
A Mum being a Mum, and carrying all our stuff
Another pause on the way down, the siblings
Had to jump a little creek at the bottom, ACTION SHOTS!!!! blah!
Most remote bar i've ever seen
Just a man with his dog in the mountains, not bad
Not a bad finale

The hike was rad, the weekend was amazing, and I had a great time. Thanks again to the Clinchs.
