Refuge Albert 1er Glacier du Tour

Refuge Albert 1er Glacier du Tour

The hike to the Refuge Albert 1er and the Glacier du Tour was one of my favourite day hikes around Chamonix. Of course, the weather helped. I should add that there are many more day hikes in the area that I would love to do. The Glacier du Tour is rapidly receding. These photos were taken in 2015.
