I went searching for Lac de Roy in the French Alps and all I found was this small puddle. After about 4 hours of hiking with no navigation equipment this was as good as it was going to get. I guess I really need to update my tech! Or at least take a map.
Since there was no distinct path I ended up going a bit cross country, wherever my camera eye decided was best. Fortunately I spotted this collection of water that I thought might provide some foreground interest. It was pretty damp and I was very thankful for my waterproof shoes!
After returning home I discovered that I actually got really close to Lac de Roy, it was just a few hundred metres the other side of a peak I decided not to traverse. So I’ve looked up a shorter, more simple route for the next time I’m in this beautiful area of the Alps.
