On top!

We went in 2 cable cars to get to the top of Aiguille du Midi (= middle needle in the Mont Blanc massif). You can see the entrance to the cable car station in the inset photo. Very cold, very thin air so I got altitude illness immediately which was a bit sad, especially as people older than me were happily prancing around…

Here Rob congratulates Elly on climbing Mont Blanc in the background last year.

We took the cable cars up again the day before we left and I prepared myself to have NO  altitude sickness and really enjoyed it – began to see why Elly first came here.
