Day 4 - Tue 28th - Les Houches to Tignes
Some big mountains to cross today. Redmond and Becky circuited Mont Blanc via Beaufort, Bourg-Saint Maurice and Mont Pourri. They have past various dams (3 in fact), high mountain lakes, various ski resorts, pine forests and small towns high up in the mountains. The terrain today has been very tough indeed, several occasions having to engage 4x4L on the Rocklobster as it could not cope at such a steep gradient on loose gravel. Also come across some mud in a few places with some water despite everywhere else being bone dry. Reception from the locals today has not been so negative, lots of waves from the locals!
Jimny is holding up well although keeping an eye on the rear wheel bearing.
