chamonix : down in the valley

6.14.2012


































while ceej was in meetings i had the luxury of exploring the area.
initially, i was confident, and bought a map so i could find trails to hike,
and i bought a chocolate croissant for a snack...

well, i wandered and wandered and couldn't find any trails that didn't
require a long train ride or a long tram ride or that wasn't still covered in snow.
i returned to my apartment, pouting. how could i be in such a scenic place,
and not figure out how to actually get up into the mountains?!

luckily, ceej had discovered a little walking path that went right through
the valley, and on one of his breaks showed me on the map how to get there.
so i got there. with my chocolate croissant. and it was all beautiful.

I'm glad you found the trail! The Alps have an unmatchable beauty about them. They truly define the word majestic. Gorgeous shots! And a chocolate croissant is the perfect accoutrement for a long hike through the Alps.

Chamonix is definitely on my list of places to go now. :)

I'm currently in the Swiss Alps, and I'm pretty sure I just took these same photos myself. :) Lovely. And you're right: these mountains are alive.
