Day 39 – Montreux to Saint Maurice – 27km

image

Lake Geneva is looking perfect this morning.

image

Castles appear out of nowhere – very Hans Christian Anderson like!

image

We’re back walking in canal territory. This one runs from Villeneuve to Aigle.

image

Our lunch stop was in the sunshine – not much else is needed except bread, cheese, water and a log to sit on – perfect!

image

We walked mostly on hard surfaces along the levy bank beside the Rhone River. T’was very tiring on our feet.

image

Occasionally we found some puddles and mud too.

image

And a few snow capped mountains.

image

We at last reached St. Maurice village.

image

We’ve arrived after a very long day walking on mostly hard surfaces resulting in very sore feet – and 2 small blisters!

image

We’re starting the slow climb now up to the pass. The next few days we’ll do some significant climbing.
