A relatively short but steep hike up to some beautiful mountain lakes.
Starting at Casserousse, the first part of the hike was through the forest.
But soon the first views opened up.
The little Lac des Pourettes.
Clouds were being blown up from the valley below.
But then a last little climb to a col.
And suddenly the Lacs Robert in full view!
Just when I was about to leave the lakes again, the clouds started appearing here too.
And even some fog above the lake.
On the way down I was pretty much walking through the clouds the whole way.
Only when I was almost down did I get below the clouds.
With a view of Chamrousse, my destination.
And then a few panoramic views.
The hike and elevation profile.
