Our favorite place in the French Alps (but, of course), site of at least six previous visits, many adventures (the telepheriques and hiking in 1979, 1986, 1989, etc., parasailing in 1993, the Tour du Mont Blanc in 2005) and Chamonix.  We stayed more than a week this time (including two days of wretched camper repairs, one day of sickness), camped with dozens of other RVs in the aire that is part of the Telepherique d'Aiguille du Midi parking lot, a block from central Chamonix. More adventures, memories, and...pix.

The Aiguille du Midi; we are parked right below is
about 9,000 feet above us!
