Brief Directions

9000 feet straight up from Chamonix, France.

Notes

If you plan to visit and photograph this high country I would suggest leaving your large, clunky camera equipment back home as it would be very difficult to handle large lenses and cameras on the super crowded gondola and just as difficult once on top.

Description

After a 9000 foot ride in a gondola up to a mountain peak at almost 13,000 feet, I was surprised at the number of hikers in the snowfields on the flanks of Mont Blanc. The hikers provide some perspective as to the majestic vastness of this mountain terrain.
