After a long day of hiking (we did the first stage of the trail du Mont Blanc) we arrived at Auberge du Truc. We had just passed the larger Auberge du Miage where a lot of people were enjoying their nice well deserved beer after a long day hiking in the sun. We wanted to order our beer at du... More
