Le Montevers Oct. 4 - 2011

Le Montevers is best translated into the back of the mount which of course fits here since we are on the “backside” of Mont Blanc overlooking the largest glacier in the massif: “La Mer de Glace”. We hiked from the village of “Les Bois” in the valley to Montevers and then onto the “Signal Forbes” from which the view spans from Mont Blanc – Chamonix - Mer de Glace.

Here are the pictures (click to enlarge).

The Montevers cog train that comes in from
Chamonix, and no, we did NOT take the train up...

More infrastructure - the hotel opposite the
train stop and overlooking the glacier.

The glacier himself...
