Day 6: Refugio Bonatti to La Fouly

View to the south in the Italian Val Ferret, showing Refugio Bonatti and Mt Blanc.

The dog above lives with the sheep and protects them at the Col Ferret, on the border of Italy and Switzerland - at least in the summer when the sheep graze in the high fields.

Stage 6 went from Italy into Swizerland, with a distance of 20 km; 900 m ascent and 1400 m descent.
