Arrival in Chamonix

An early start, one flight and a 1 hour drive later and we have arrived at the foot of Mont Blanc. From where we are sitting, in a cafe cooking in the 32 degree heat, Mont Blanc looks extremely intimidating and very tiring work - not a great mindset to kick start the holiday!

However, the views from Chalet Mcnab (see the pics) along the Chamonix valley are amazing. When we have visited in the Winter you don't grasp the full scale of the mountains, but now, with little snow to hide their height it is awe inspiring with the glaciers flowing down into the valley.

Tomorrow the work starts.......but for now its dinner with our fellow climbers!
