What we liked most:
1) The hike from Mt Fort to the Louvie Caban was spectacular. I know most folks go directly from Mt Fort to Prafleuri, but I’m glad we stayed at Louvie.
2) When we stayed at Dix there was a big crowd and we had a great time visiting with folks from all over the world. It also is a really beautiful spot.
2) From Dix we crossed the small glacier to go to Arolla. I know you recommended against this, but it was very well traveled and marked. Everyone I talked to at Dix said it was safe, and the alternative was to re-trace our steps all the way back to the lake. So we went ahead and crossed it and really enjoyed the experience.
3) The food at the Mont Collon and Alpina was terrific.
