Sophie set herself a challenge: to go trekking with a group of people she hardly knew while minimizing her carbon footprint.
A challenge that was certainly accepted with this itinerary setting out from Chambéry, offering both magnificent views and burgeoning friendship!
The last days of summer combined with World Clean Up Day were the perfect excuse to plan a weekend in the mountains, while attempting to reduce my carbon footprint!
Highest point: pointe de la Gorgeat 1486m
