Sunrise from Chamonix (the highest summit is on the left)  

At 4,810 meters (15,782) Mont Blanc is the highest mountain in Europe

 The Gondola rises up 9,000 feet in two 15 minute sections to the Aiguille du Midi (12,602 feet)

Looking down 9,000 feet below to Chamonix and northeast towards Switzerland

Modern mountaineering started here.

A black bird (with yellow beak) soars high to snag part of a tourists lunch

Looking back up from the valley towards various "needles" in the Mont-Blanc Massif
