After a very wet ,thundery and low cloud day yesterday it was back to normality in Cham today. Clear blue skies and fresh snow above 3500m. A welcome relief from last weeks blistering heat of over 30 deg C. I have never been up to the Aiguille Du Midi so I took advantage of the excellent day pass on many of the Cham Vally's cable cars and tramwway's which give IML's an excellent reduction. At €13.50 it as to be the cheapest and best value thing I have ever bought here! The views are fab from the Midi. But even better is the views from the wee cable cars across the Vally Blanche over to Italy and the Hellbroner. But the construction of the new cable system and refuge means you can't get off here. I savored the glorious views once again after returning to the Midi. I did actually get a walk in so not all a touristy day! From the mid station I walked down to the Grand Balcon Nord path and walked across to the Mer de Glace. A fine view point. Finally making the use of my cheap ticket and getting the Montevers yram back down to Chamonix. weather set to be very settled with bags of sun and hotting up again by tomorrow with another week of 30 deg C in the valley. /u>on
