Summer 2008 -- Seeking out dead trees in a Mont Tendre fog


You may not find this terribly rewarding unless you're included here, so this is a good time for casual and random browsers to turn back before they get too caught up in the sweep and majesty of the proceedings and can't let go.

Here are some views of Mont Tendre in the valley of the dead trees, a grim day in early June

We're passing the cabane Aurore on our way towards Mont Tendre, 8 June 2008.

Our guide, Dr Pirri, is peering up the valley of dead trees

My great plan is to improve my page on dead trees of Mont Tendre with some strikingly artistic entries, but the weather went very crook on us.

Dead grey trees against a dead grey sky

Joe testing dead trees' deadness. Mont Tendre is up on the left.

Enough trees, we'll walk over to the summit pylon to keep busy for a while.

We're making a circuit around Mont Tendre, and there's the Chalet de Yens

And the Cabane du Cunay towards the end of the day
