Weekly Photo Challenge – Connected


An old two-carriage train connects the village of Chamonix in the French Alps to a hill station next to the Montenvers glacier. The thirty-minute train journey through the mountains is followed by a short cable car ride that connects the hill station to the glacier at the bottom of the glacial valley, almost. A walk on foot down some 450 steps completes the journey. For the unfit, the walk back up later on can be a struggle.

  1. Like your choice, Michael. Walking down is really harder on the legs than walking up, although the two together here probably gives a great workout.



      • Maybe lots of them don’t do that much walking at home. But even when I was in great shape in college, I went down a very long flight of stairs from a youth hostel somewhere in Switzerland and down was much harder on my legs than up. Read later that’s true, so it’s not just my imagination. 🙂
