VIA FRANCIGENA | Day 29
Foucherans to Mouthier-Haute-Pierre, 25.2 km
One minute update
No breakfast was served, so I had my last two cereal bars as I left town at 7:30 am.
The woods led to the scariest of places as they usually do; a 180-meter tunnel straight out of a Hitchcock flick. No lights and bats were flying around.
Once out the well-marked path followed the river as it zigs zags its way cutting through the mountains. And what views!
Took a detour for lunch and it did not disappoint. Cold salad, pork, and pasta with a cold one to wash it all down. It hit the spot.
The river was too tempting to pass, a quick dip in cold glacier water really woke me up, but it also gave me the needed boost to keep going. It was water at a cemetery and a snack directly from the source.
Reached Mouthier around four and found the church opened. No stamp but I still went inside to get a better feel of the place. Thanks to donations I got a room and what a view. My god the best one so far, magnifique.
Laundry was a breeze, and so I left it drying at the balcony while I went out for dinner.
