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. As we were going a fine rain made its appearance and some photographs that show signs with drops on the camera lens. I think I had never been so happy for rain as it has been my only chance as a photographer to take the rainbow as it is also in one of the pictures out double. The solitude of the place, the vast greenery surrounding it, the silence and those Alpine peaks made this little excursion one of the most enjoyable experiences I've had.
The town of Bourg-Saint-Maurice is undoubtedly one of the lost paradises of the French Alps. It can be found in the Tarentaise valley at the end of the Isere valley, and it has become an ideal place for people who love to ski because of its mountains. First, let me just tell you that in Bourg there are four famous ski resorts, such as Les ATCS 1600, Les Arcs 1800, Les Arcs 1950 Les Arcs 2000 ranging between 810 and 3225 meters in height . For the latter, after savoring the tranquility and little agglomeration of public during the summer months, walking tours, bike or drive from this place are multiple.
