Tuesday afternoon in brilliant sunshine we took the Brevant cable car, which in itself is not a very long journey (but you need to go up a gondola from Chamonix to Planpratz first), to the summit of Brevant. to take in some superlative views of the Mont Blanc massif across the valley followed by a walk along part of the Tour de Mont Blanc route. Wednesday afternoon and we had been elsewhere that morning but decided to have one last trip up Le Brevant. The cloud surrounded the cable car and rain was in the air. You could not see a thing! I did feel sorry for the party of Japanese tourists who were probably in Chamonix for that one day only.
