Matterhorn Glacier Paradise is the highest place in Europe that can be reached by aerial tramway, as well as by any other means of transport, offering views of the highest mountains in Italy, France and Switzerland. The weather was so perfect that I was able to zoom in on Mont Blanc (in the center of this picture) in Chamonix, France. Mont Blanc is the highest mountain in the Alps at 15,777 feet and Chamonix was the site of the first Winter Olympics in 1924. We had been lucky enough to make a side trip to Chamonix and see Mont Blanc up close earlier in our trip.
