Above the clouds away from the core of the Earth, sits the peak of Mont Blanc. Tallest mountain peak in all of Europe, it sits at 3842 meters above the numberless height of the sea.

The entire Leysin American School staff was treated to a day in Chamonix, France (super famous ski resort) and the mountains above it. It was mind boggling to go up there with the new staff I'd just met and sit above the clouds on the peaks of the Swiss/French Alps. I even felt like I was unfairly allowed to see such an amazing sight with my own eyes, without having to work to acheive such natural beauty, but hey, gondolas have paved the way, and so be it.

Chodders! I miss you homes. These photos are amazing man. Israel won't be happening this summer, so that means no meeting in Swiss cheese land. One day we will travel together.
