Crêt de la Neuve

A rainy/snowy day in March 2004


The tattered flag has flown high over the Crêt de la Neuve for as long as we can remember, as here in December 2001 . . .

. . . but no more, evidently!

On a half-rainy/half-snowing day, 21 March 2004, the proud emblem of the Confederation is noticeably absent from the observation deck. Over the years, the flag itself has annually grown tattered and blown away in the storms, but at least we could count on the flagpole!

Luckily, the summit cross is still there (as are wet smudges on the lens).

The narrator waiting for the rain to finish changing over to snow, so there will be something to snowshoe home on besides wet grass. March 2004.

That's the Chemin des Crêtes stretching off towards the Perroude de Marchissy and, eventually, St Cergue.

Plans are being made to get out of here before the whole thing fills up with water.
