The magnificent Les Drus
Mer de Glace & Grand Jorasses
Spires and glaciers all day
Some late afternoon cloud, even better
The Aguille Rouge
The clear skies over the Chamonix valley coaxed me away from the boring paperwork today. I had a quick blast up to Montenvers and along the Grand Balcon Nord. With lots of folk around I escaped the madding crowds and found a delightful spot with an even more impressive angle on Les Dru's classic shape. I sat in the sun gazing across the Met de Glace whilst waiting for the sun to move into the finest position for photos. But the paperwork becond so I tore myself away and caught the train down from Montenvers. Stunner of a day.
