La Blanc to Chamonix – lots of snow for the end of the TMB!

We woke up to the last day of the trek and found a thick layer of snow surrounding us. After a short breakfast we all went out and realized that at least the lake hasn’t frozen. When walking, my feet got completely inside the snow that almost reached my knees, and it wasn’t there at all when we went to sleep!

We decided to wait for a couple of French tour guides we had met yesterday to go out first. Then, we (literally) followed their footsteps in the snow.

We decided to go straight to Chamonix. As we lost height the snow began to disappear and we were able to see the mountain peaks through the trees.

When we reached Chamonix we said goodbye to Matt and Keith, as well as Yoram and Yael. We stopped counting the 179 KMs we walked as part of the TMB through 78 hours of walking. We then had lunch and found our hotel, then went to look around Chamonix.

For desert we took the “Mont Blanc cake”. Besides looking a bit like mountain peaks, it was really delicious.

We have another two days to spend in Chamonix. We are going to rest and enjoy the fine views of the mountains, and yet – the TMB is over.

It was a really amazing experience, made of so many little experiences together. We saw so many views, met lots of great people from around the world (and surprisingly enough, mainly Israelis), had some very tough moments, climbed ladders, did (well, tried to) mud-ski, played cards and so much more. Yeah, it was awesome.
