DSC_0211Chamonix is at the foot of Mont Blanc.  The highest point a person can go is about 12,600 feet.  You can spend the night in the Pinacle on the peak of the Aiguille du Midi if you want.  The town is great.  Lots of restaurants and nightlife.  There is also a Club Med if you are inclined.  The hikes in the summer are fantastic, and the skiing in winter is like no other.  In summer, you can ride from the top of the Brevent lift on a parachute all the way down the the meadow in town.  Fantastic.  The Brevent lift is on the opposite side of town from Mont Blanc.  One picture in this set is not for use by others.
