Around the Dents du Midi : Cab. Susanfe -> Salvan

Starting early from the Cabane de Susanfe (2102m, 7:00) under uncertain skies (spots of blue in an otherwise somewhat threatening sky); up to the Col de Susanfe (2494m), where the pass wind was just insane; down, with some scrambly bits, past a group of very playful mountain goats, to the Lac de Salanfe (1925m) and then around to the hotel where we had a break and piece of cake. Down, down along a way that's part gravel road, part very nice woods path, to the floor of the Vallon de Van; through the cluster of vacation houses at Van d'en Haut; through the woods and down to Salvan (934m, 3:15).
it's windy on the Col de Susanfe
