Wow… things probably can’t get much better. We had a truly wonderful time with the Fuchs family last week and then on Monday we travelled by train to Argentiere, France (At the base of Mont Blanc, near Chamonix). This place is absolutely amazing!!! I can’t wait for you all to see the pictures. It is like we are in a fairy tale. Unfortunatly the pictures do not do this place justice. The alps sore over us as if hung from the sky. Yesterday Jenny and I went into Chamonix. It is a nice town, but too many people. We prefer Argentiere because it is cute, not crowded and has pretty much the same views. Every other shop here is a gear shop and the rest are restaurants and souvenir shops. The place we are staying, "Chalet Le Marti," is a short walk from the main street and has a beautiful view of the Argentiere Glacier. Today we got our first glimpse of the summit of Mont Blanc. We had incredible views of all the surrounding Alps as we hiked out of the valley towards Lac Blanc. We climbed nearly 1100 meters (in total elevation gain) to Lac Blanc and just sat in awe for over an hour. Almost 360 degrees around us rose the Alps. The sky was almost cloudless this morning and we took lots of amazing pictures. We have just 2 more days here before we (hopefully if the weather is good) will take cable cars over the mountains into Italy. Life really couldn’t be much better. I am in the Alps, enjoying Stella Artois beer, and my cell phone doesn’t have service here. 😉 I just wish you all were here with Jenny and I. We will write again from Italy.
