At my favorite places, I find that I can spend hours just sitting and watching. There is always something to see or to notice. In this particular case it was the second day of our stay in Les Arcs (during the winter). The day before our arrival and passing through Bourg-St-Maurice stuck with me the image of a small road that indicated the Route des Grandes Alpes. As I said without thinking twice decided that cogiésemos aventurásemos the car and a bit down that road. The afternoon had rain but even with this drawback we decided to go down one of the existing alpine valleys in the area. The road is the classic of these parts, narrow and winding.
