Mont Blanc #2 finishes with celebration dinner in town

Greetings from Chamonix, France

Our Mont Blanc team #2 just finished up last night with a traditional french dinner in town. We got to share pictures and stories as we ate Tartiflette, steak, and drank some good wine over dinner. This morning our climbers departed Chamonix heading back to there home. One of our climbers will be joining us for another week on the Matterhorn.

Here are a couple more pictures from our recent summit on the Mont Blanc.

Thanks for following our cyber cast and we will be in touch with our next program.
