Saturday, August 16 was our rest day. We had a leisurely breakfast and strolled around Les Houdres before we began our walk. We hiked for about one hour to the village of La Sage just above in the same valley, where we found the beautiful Hotel de La Sage with its beautiful views of the Dent de Veisivi peaks and Pigne d' Arolla above the valley. We had lunch at a restaurant on a deck with nice views. Afterward, we spent time in the hotel salon with its grand windows showing alpine scenery in all directions. We had pork with a nice sauce for dinner with cake and ice cream for dessert.
