Tree-climbers, Neuchatel, Mont Blanc
More trips around Switzerland and France.
|Parc la Grange next door had a tree-climbers competition, with timed tree-top rescues, races up a tree to ring a bell, etc.||The kids loved this monster swing, which was unfortunately shut down shortly after this picture because there'd been a safety concern|
|The dummy has been rescued||There was a small area for kids to climb as well|
|On our trip to Neuchatel, as usual, we spent some time in a playground||A walk near Pragins along the "Sentier de Toblerones" (anti tank defense system set up around World War II in Switzerland). Much of it wound through a golf course, and wasn't very interesting, but once we got to the actual"toblerones" it got better.||Old fort This building (La Villa Rose) is fake - it's actually a fort, with cute windows painted on it.||At the Aiguille du Midi cablecar, with a view of Mont Blanc. Man was it COLD! We should have brought much warmer clothing. Plus Eric left his shell jacket at home. Luckily we had beautiful weather.||We sheltered here for a while - the dark metal was actually nicely warmed from the sun.||This is the path for people to hike down.||Ahh....at the middle station of the cable car the temperatures were much more agreeable! Lots of great picture taking opportunities.||Kevin and Petra were here for a visit|
