VIA FRANCIGENA | Day 39

Orsières to Bourg Saint Pierre, 14.3 km

One minute video update

The second day ascending the Alps. It was backcountry roads, past streams, hydroelectric pipes, and the ladies.

I ran into Rudolf, and we were soon facing a very scary slope. I had an expresso at the halfway point, and It was time for a first on the trip. It got so cold Chia lebuff made its triumphant debut on the vlog.

A river crossing and a dip under an electric fence later and I was at Saint Pierre just before the temperatures plunged into the single digits.

Thanks to donation I stayed at an albergue with a dorm all to myself. By the way, my toe has healed beautifully. There was a church, and it had a stamp, I was a happy camper.

Once the rain started It didn’t stop all afternoon. I had dinner with the newly formed wolf pack: two Italians, a German and le cubain.

Beers all around.
