I arrived in Chamonix in the French Alps on Sunday and made the decision to go up to the top of the mountains as soon as possible as the weather was predcitied to get bad by that evening. And that has been true. It has rained, been foggy , cloudy and cool since Sunday night. It was quite the experience to be on top of the Alps looking at rock, snow and ice in all directions. The cable car goes up in 2 segments, the second segmnet is so steep - almost vertical by the end. More pictures below.
