Hiking trip in the Alps

Hiking trip in the Alps
The hiking was exceptional! I cannot say enough for the mountain views and variety of interesting terrain. We had meadows of wildflowers, passes with marmots, and glaciers up close and personal. I have been dreaming of beautiful mountain scenes for 30 years, and every valley we were in, presented a new perfect picture. For those who dream of mountains this is the perfect trip!

Mt Blanc Tram Chamonix France

Mt Blanc Tram Chamonix France
If you get a chance this, the world’s longest and highest tramway, is well worth the European Euros that you will pay to get to the top. The views from the top of the Chamonix Valley, and of Mt. Blanc and the nearby mountains, are spectacular. This spire of rock is pictured everywhere in the town of Chamonix. They have paintings of it, postcards, and large pictures available at the shops in town. It is situated at about 12,600 feet in the shadow of Mount Blanc which rises another 3000 feet or so above.
