After walking through the town and doing a bit of souvenir shopping, we continued to follow the route down to the river. The route was shaded with aspen like trees. The rest of this stage passed along small country roads. We passed through several small hamlets and eventually arrived in Bionnassay, where we had lunch. After lunch was the long climb up the Col de Voza and then a long descent into les Houches. Today was 17 km was just over seven hours hiking with another hour plus for lunch.
