Narrative: The Col de Lautaret, distant about fourteen miles from Briancon, is remarkable as a barrier between high ranges of mountains blocking up and separating the valleys of the Guisanne and the Romanche; it is nearly five hundred feet higher than the Mont Genevre, and has no plain on its summit, the greatest extent of level ground being not more than fifty yards: the crest of the passage is covered with a delicious greensward, which is enamelled with rare and beautiful Alpine flowers, — a land of Goshen amidst the scene which storms and avalanches have desolated.* On the Col de Lautaret there yet remains one of the maisons hospitalieres, founded by Humbert H.yf which was undergoing repair when the author passed the mountains. The scenes from the descent towards the Val Romanche are scarcely less savage than those on the side of the Guisanne; the immense glacier of Tabuchet, from which the river Romanche issues, presents itself on the left: after an hour's descent, the road continues by the course of the river through the valley. A little beyond the village of Villard d'Arene, the traveller descends abruptly to a part of the road where the vast overhanging rocks close in, apparently, without leaving a sufficient opening for the escape of the waters of the river Romanche, which fall into a deep and dark defile :* the path lies beneath rocks, which threaten to overwhelm the traveller; and the effect of the scene and situation upon his feelings as he passes opposite the cataract cannot be described. Thence the road ascends to a fearful height above the river, which is heard to roar below, keeping the mind alive to a sense of danger, until the scene opens upon the little territory of La Grave, which is magnificent.
