Day 4: Col de Torrent (2,900 meters); View from the top and to 2,500 meters

View from the top of the pass looking west.

The view below looks southwest into the Val d'Herens. the destination of Les Hauderes, and the Val d'Arolla branching off to the right.

 Looking south, our first view of the Matterhorn and high passes into Italy. 

 On this 2,500 meter high plateau, hang gliders take off into the wind.

Mountain guide Clive asks Alan, "Didn't we meet on the GR 5 in France last year?"
Clive was right!
