Awesome Peter...I know this place but I could not remember his name. I still remember that impressive long climb to enter the wonderful site of Mont Blanc. Danièle

De bewolking is al aardig aanwezig, meestal vliegen ze niet zo hoog bij het minste wolkje ! Je zit beina op 4 km hoogte ! veel hoger kan je in Europa niet komen !
