AuguilleAlpinistes MontBlancfromAiguille

Alpinistes (L) and Mont Blanc (R) viewed from a quick trip up to the Aiguille du Midi.

AuguilleIce

The weather wasn’t great and freezing rain / ice had stuck to outside of the station.

(Too cloudy for photographs from a trip up the Flagère cable car and the L’Index télésiège!)

ChurchExterior ChurchInterior

Chapel at Les Praz [45.94054 N 6.88728 E].

OrangePeelFungus

The distinctive and aptly named Orange Peel fungus, Aleuria aurantia.

Pufball

An undistinguished puffball – curiously called in French une vesse-de-loup (“wolf’s fart”!).

DarkHoofFungus

Probably Fomitopsis pinicola.

UnidentifiedShelf

Unidentified – perhaps a Soft Slipper fungus, Crepidotus mollis?

UnidentifiedFungus UnidentifiedFungusUnderside

Unidentified.

FrenchPortaloo

A classy French portaloo!

FungusHaul

The final fungus haul; a lovely cep (top left), some kind of milk cap (top right), some not-so-interesting bolete (bottom left) and uncertain (bottom right).  Pleasingly it turned out to be true that French pharmacists were trained in identifying edible fungi.
