[edit] Participants


[edit] Plans

Change trains in Martigny and Sembrancher, take the bus in Orsières, arrive to Grand-St-Bernard at 12:50. Walk to the hash. Same way back, bus leaving at 16:20.

[edit] visit

Great St Bernard Hospice, museum and Via Francigena temporary exhibition

[edit] Expedition

Everything went according to plan, and we both enjoyed the day, as can be seen from the pictures.

We had a very good (and reasonably priced) coffee resp. ice cream at the hotel on the Italian side, then we visited the museum at the hospice before taking the bus back.

We had to walk in the snow 
Getting closer... 
Only a few meters left, the melting snow was producing wide streams to cross. 
Coordinates reached!

We left a marker.
