Chamonix, France


We finally made it up to Chamonix for an afternoon with our friends. We found the town underwhelming. Next time we must go up one of the gondolas and perhaps go for a hike. I think that is where the attraction of this area lies!






This trompe l'oeil depicts famous mountain climbers past and present.

underwhelming...LOL I think of my hometown as underwhelming. And there's Charlie, the dapper traveling hound!

Charlie is a great model. He makes any landscape look better!

Thanks! You see it everywhere in France. Seems every village has some.
