Lac Blanc

Monday I took the same La Flegere telepherique back up the Aiguille Rouge and walked the other way, mainly up, taking the trail to Lac Blanc, a high tarn with celebrated views of the Mont Blanc massif.
It's all in the Aiguille Rouge national park;
they don't even allow tenting here! Other
places around the massif, in France, you
can erect a mountain tent only between
7PM and 7AM; in Italy, only above 7,000
feet; in Switzerland, no place, no how.

Looking across the valley to the Mer du Glace

Lac Blanc was still frozen

But the view was great

Like seals on a rock on the California coast, oui?
