Mont Blanc, Italy // FLASHBACK FRIDAY

Towards the end of my 5 week backpacking trip through Italy in 2007, I did some trekking in the northwest and then high tailed it to the border of France. As tempting as it was to cross into another country, I decided to save France for another trip.

Instead, I went as far as the town of Courmayeur and took a cable car up toward Mont Blanc. Braving the cold rewarded me with views like this:

It may not be as dramatically scenic as the Himalayas or Mt. Everest, but the Alps and Mont Blanc certainly hold their own in Europe.
