My Intrepid Artists didn't get to see Mont Blanc, it stayed moody and elusive. I did get close. Cycling up Col de la Faucille I was promised a view that John Ruskin stated was magnificent, one hundred miles of Alps with Mont Blanc towering high above Lake Geneva. So with this in mind the peddling begun, and it was easier than mighty Alpe d'Huez!
Nearly at the top and a blue glaze softened the majestic view.
The view is argued to be better than the Col de la Plaine but I'm not sure!
