The team of 24

Celebrating on the descent 
This week I am co-guiding a big group of folk from the USA for Alpine Treks based in the Chamonix Valley.  Mark, Blaise & myself eased our group of 24 folk into their holiday with a lovely stroll across the Grand Balcon Nord.  This fabulous walk is made very easy by using the Aiguille du Midi cablecar to start and descending via the Montenvers team at the end. It was another lovely and sunny day with cloud building up in the afternoon. Just a nudge cooler than last week thankfully. There has been some good thunderstorm activity during the last couple of nights to bring the temperatures down and making the air clear.
