It was morning in Champex and we were supposed to get to Cabane de Louvie by nightfall. Ideally we'd stay somewhere in between here and Louvie but we didn't have the time, so we were skipping a stop on the route. But we weren't free of hiking because Louvie is remote, it's up in the mountains with no road access. The nearest town is Fionnay so that was our plan, take a taxi to Fionnay then hike up from there.

It's a long way
     
In the lower left corner is Chamonix. In the lower right is Fionnay. Near Fionnay you might make out the line for a cable car. I don't think the cable car had been built yet when we were there. At the end of the cable car you can see Cabane de Louvie and the lake. View Larger Map
