Thank you for the Y *, Nick! To this picture, I took the cable car of the Aiguille du Midi and I'm halfway down. (There are two serial cable cars). So I went at foot to the sea ice (La mer de glace). 2 hours of walking! I came over the mountain above the station and there I shoot the picture. I went to the station and took the train to Chamonix. It took me the morning. My wife did not come! There is another photo of the sea ice taken from the station which has more success than this one!

All the best from France,

Réchauffement climatique! Elle perdu beaucoup d'épaisseur en 40 ans. Le choc quand j'y suis retourné il y a 6 ans et j'ai rien reconnu. Belle balade toutefois dans un ste exceptionnel. Bon week-end.

Maudit réchauffement climatique ! Et bien, ma photo a 6 ans… Donc, on était la même année à Chamonix !

Amitiés, Bernard

Après vérification c'était en 2006(la mémoire me fait défaut parfois à mon âge....). Je n'ai pas encore posté ces photos ici mais si Pano demeure encore, un jour peut-être je les mettrai.

Salutations cordiales.
