. . . continuing up thru the
pasture-land . . .
east across another side-valley
southwest again to the Dents du Midi
at the village of Gryon, the
railroad line joins the road -- here alongside, but higher up the
train tracks run on the road, so the bicyclists "share the road"
with trains as well as cars
east to the peaks by the Col de la Croix, which I did not feel any need to
climb to that day
other riders traveling light
just for a light day-trip also selected this climb
Villars-sur-Ollon, my chosen
finish for this climb. Then I rode back down to Bex by the
same road . . .
thru the same vineyards
and going down was fun, too
