Maaike writes about the river that flows from Mont Blanc glacier and how beautiful she found it. She says the water is milky white and very wild. And a rope bridge as well as large rocks that could be used as stepping stones. I would love to see both those water crossings, but I'd probably pick the stones for crossing. I have always enjoyed stepping stones. It makes me feel like a kid again.
There is talk of Mont Blanc becoming a UNESCO World Heritage site partly because it is considered the origin of modern mountaineering. I don't think much has come of the plan, but it would be a shared site because it falls within Italy, France and Switzerland. I believe this is a view from France. I would have to find one from Italy and Switzerland to complete this one UNESCO site :-)
