An intro to the Alps

We pitched our camp for several days on a ledge near Refuge Albert Premier above le Tour in the Chamonix valley. From here we could peacefully plan the different day trips, yet still being comfortably near the facilities of the hut. All after agreement with the hut keeper, as you always ought to do when you are camping next to a mountain hut, an agrement which probably came easier as we every evening went down to the hut to knock off a few beers.
