A lovely day, sunny and hot in Chamonix. The biggest tourist attraction in the area is the amazing cablecar which runs from Chamonix up to the Aiguille du Midi at over 3800m. Even more spectacular is the wee cablecars that run from the Midi over to the Hellbronner summit in Italy, don't miss it! With wonderful views of all the big Mont Blanc massif peaks as you slowly drift over the Geant Glacier. It's not cheap but with my IML carnet I get to ride all of the cablecars and trains in the Chamonix Valley for €15 per day, the price of a couple of beers! It's great being a tourist now and again.
