AIGUILLE DU MIDI & BREVENT
Blue skies and hot again. We had a tourists morning and headed up onto the Aiguille du Midi, the top attraction in Chamonix . Fabulous views as ever. It's a shame that the cablecar across from the Aiguille du Midi to Hellbroner has been damaged and out of action for the whole summer. After lunch we walked from the Brevent down to Les Houches. On the way there was time for a swim in Lac Brevent and some wonderful ibex. A female and her two youngsters.
