Day 10 Les Chappieux to Elizabetta Refuge.

Over Col de Seigne 2,516m. We start to the sounds of whistling marmots but it is a while until some are spotted. The walk up the valley to Refuge de Mottets is very pleasant and cool with many unidentified small birds. We get coffee and Tim and Tony work out how to put the table parasols up until the boss lady comes and puts up all the rest.
The long slow ascent of the Col of Infinite False summits AKA col de seinge takes a while but views from the top are stunning. Including Mont Blanc which we could not see yesterday afternoon being down in the valley of les Chappieux one of the few places in Europe without internet, unless you buy a pizza.
The descent to Refuge Elizabetta is relatively easy and perched as it is under the Glacier de la Lee Blanche a sight though severely shrunken since the IGN map was revised.
