Alpine Crossing 2013 – Day 40: Terme di Valdieri – Rifugio Genova

We started after breakfast today – with coffee! :) A mountain path led us upwards to a first mountain hut – Rifugio Morelli-Buzzl. We passed this one heading right to the first pass on 2526m. Thus last part of the path didn’t seem to come to an end! Finally, from the top we were able to see lake “Bacino del Chiotas” the first time (not that anyone can remember that name…). The path downwards was also very long – actually the lake seemed to be quite close…but this was not the case. To reach our destination for today – Rifugio Genova – we had to walk up about 100m again. Even if this was just 100m it was a pain after walking downwards for several hours. We finally arrived at the hut and received a very nice room :) From the hut we had a tremendous view on the lake. For the rest of the day we stayed in the sun moving as less as possible :)
