Postcards from....

While we are on the topic of "natural beauty"......

I got tired of racking my brain trying to think of something my guy might like for his birthday.... so I got him someplace we could both enjoy..... 24 hours in Chamonix, France..... a small ski-village about 45 minutes from our house..... a place for what I like to call "real-deal" sports folk who have their first adrenaline rush before I've even finished my first cup of coffee.  
Luckily for us, however, nature doesn't discriminate....

hiking anyone?

or rock climbing? .... look real close

just for perspective, this was the view from where I was standing....the climbers were in a crevice right in the middle of the photo; and, yes, those are folks standing on a terrace to the left....

zoom lense....brave, brave souls....

 a little para-gliding perhaps?..... on my "must-do" list

someone in this town definitely has a green thumb....

the preferred mode of transportation for us common folk
contemplating asking some roaming donkeys to join me for a pic. :)
signs of global warming..... glacier melt
my trusty and faithful travel companion.....

Happy weekend everyone!


  1. Ok, so now on my "must-do" list... since I "musn't-do" it myself... watch you para-glide. Wow!

  3. Wow these are beautiful pictures and that town is lovely. The paragliding looks more scary that the rock climbing!


Thanks for sharing!
