We didn't do the full TMB route. Instead we stopped for a night in Champex and the next day took a bus to the train and then on to Paris.

We met in Geneva, hung out in Chamonix (i) for a couple days, which was just time enough for another visit to Aiguille du Mid, then we took the train to Finhaut where we began our hike. Here we are in Finhaut, stoking up for the days ahead.
