Description

At 12,700 feet this is the view from a restaurant built on a mountain peak just below the 16,000 foot Mont Blanc. The person in this photo is on a balcony of that restaurant. I have a great admiration for French engineers after seeing what they have done at these altitudes in such rugged mountains.
