Excursion 02

Sunday, 16 June 1996

Dear colleagues,

The excursion I am proposing follows the same line as the first one: low altitude and small distance to climb. This is due to unavoidable duties some among us have on Saturday night. I hope the next week we start with bigger strength. My proposal for excursion 02 (this Sunday) is the following:

Date: Sunday, 16 June 1996
Site: La montagne des Soeurs (1257 m)
Classification: Easy
Altitude: 1257 m
Climbing up distance: 424 m
Climbing time: 1 hours 30 minutes
Total hiking time: 2 hours 30 minutes
Starting point: Reyvroz (833 m)
Meeting point: CERN Main Cafeteria 9h45 am
Remarks: Panoramics, view over the Leman lake
Access: Take road N5 to Thonon les Bains. From there take road D26 to Armory and continue by the same road up to Reyvroz. Drive up to the Church and find a parking place. The trip from CERN to Reyvroz may take 1h 10 minutes.

It is convenient to emphasize some useful items: please do not forget to carry on (wear) raincoat, hat/cap and sun glasses, warm gloves, hiking boots or sport-footwear with thick and non-slipping sole, enough food and drinks for the own consumption. Spear dry clothes and after excursion confortable shoes are very convenient.

I hope weather conditions will allow an enjoyable excursion! Cheers! Jose.
