Geocache Description:

"Drive in Cache" speziell für Motorrad Fahrer (und andere...)
"Drive in Cache" especially for motorcyclists (and others...)

Kurz hinter Martigny befindet sich das grosse Abenteuer! In Les Valettes (an der Strasse zum Grossen St. Bernard) zweigt die enge Nebenstrasse nach Champex ab. Sie bringt dich in endlosen Kurven und sehr engen Haarnadeln den Berg hinauf. Oben erwartet dich ein kleines Seelein und eine Landschaft, welche mich jedesmal an Kanada errinert (weiss auch nicht genau weshalb...). Beim "Absteig" nach Orsières hast du wiederum eine grandiose Aussicht in die walliser Bergwelt. Unten angekommen gelangst du wieder auf die Strasse welche nach Martigny zurück oder auch zum Grossen St. Bernard führt.
Ach ja, der Cache ist übrigens nur 115 kleine Schritte von der Strasse weg ;-)

An adventure starts only few kilometers from Martigny. In Les Valettes (on the way to Grand St. Bernard Pass) leave that road and take the very narrow road on the road direction Champex. You will get higher and higher up the mountains, driving neverending bends and really narrow and steep U-turns. Up there in Champex you'll surprisingly find a nice little lake and a scenery which always remembers me somehow to Canada (but I still don't know why...) Descending to Orsières you will enjoy great views from lookouts to the glaciers and mountains.
Oh by the way – the cache is only some very short 115 footsteps from the road... ;-)
