We had decided on a good walk today and the guide suggested the waterfall at
The guide said 2.5 hours......I can believe them just, in summer with a following wind.
We set off to the start point for everything in Gerardmer the quay by the lake. Once out of town the path got snowier and lots steeper. To be fair it was very well marked with little red circles on almost every tree
I didn't much like the passages dangereux on this one.
Someone has worked hard up here as the bridges over the stream are all in good condition.
The waterfall at the top was a bit of a disappointment to be honest and the ice around it prevented me getting a photo to do even its mediocre splendour justice
We are going to drive back up to the ski area later this afternoon and spend the night up there (despite the forecast of snow) to gain a march on to the slopes tomorrow.
