Mont Blanc 12,602 Feet

There are few times in my life I have been in such awe of the sight I was seeing and this was one of them.  We had a 360 degree view of the Swiss, Italian and France Alps.  Mont Blanc is the highest point in all the Alps at 15,771 feet.  But to get to the very top you much go by helicopter and dropped off without the helicopter touching down.  Then you simply ski down.  Poor people like us get to the 12,602 platform by gondola.  Worth the 100 euros it cost for both of us to go to the highest point possible.  It is something I will never forget.  Incroyable!!!!
This is the name of the crest where the highest platform is located.
