While in Chamonix Linda and I take the cable cars up to the Aiguille du Midi.

Let your eyes follow the cables up to the top where that tiny pointy thing is the destination.

The lower section of the Aiguille du Midi is in the foreground and far below is Chamonix, at the bottom of the valley.

Aiguille du Midi plan      
It's 2009 and we've returned to Chamonix to hike the Haute Route to Zermatt. Gives me a second opportunity to take the cable car to the top and, if weather permits, the tiny cable car all the way to Helbronner in Italy.

Even looking through the cable car's scratched and reflective glass it's a great view.
 
Gingie and me      
Since the weather was perfect (the cable car doesn't run in bad weather) we rode the tiny 4-person car across the glacier from Aiguille du midi to Helbronner. It's f-ing spectacular.
