  • Failed to prepare for the summer coat is a bit cold, but luckily up. The view looking down a cold climb than is seen in the dimension is different. I can't imagine it was a nice view in Korea. Carved out of the cliff where the eye blends that highlights are just ecstatic. When I went around 3 pm and a lot of people, even so I arrived just about every table. Picture may not even go up to go far. A little slack to wish to arrive early.

  • We had made the flight over Mont Blanc Megève initially and we had taken their eyes. There is another approach, and the landscape is splendid. It's really to do. We were the first climb, so mandatory presence early in the morning. Few people advantage to make beautiful pictures and go in the glass at the top of the vacuum box.

  • Go up to the Aiguille du Midi cable car is an unspeakable experience, puts you in Alpine environment, that otherwise, if you are not a climber, would be out of your reach. There are several times that we have uploaded, and has never let us down. The view over Chamonix (2000 m. below), the giant, the Grandes Jorasses, and Mont Blanc glacier, are unmatched.
