We are on a week-long trip to the Alps, and frustratingly we haven’t had any good light yet. The forecast for today was even worse than for the last days: lower temperatures, higher probability of rain and overcast sky for the entire day. They were right on the cold and rain…

The forecast for tomorrow calls for 1.5 hours of sunshine, so we hope to get even closer to Monte Bianco (aka Mont Blanc, aka the highest peak in Western Europe, 4810 m). The images here show Monte Bianco di Courmayeur (4748 m), the highest peak visible from Italy.
