Mer de Glace

Yesterday, Sammy and Max took us to Chamonix to see Mer de Glace - a glacier tucked in the mountains. We rode a train up the mountain, a gondola down the other side, and then took 350 stairs down to the valley floor, which was filled in with the glacier. We were able to go inside tunnels made in the glacier - so cold and so cool!

So cool! I saw on Bear Grills though how dangerous it is to be in tunnels under the ice :) I suppose they made it safe enough though!
