Au Secour "HELP"

Yes this really is Megan in the snow with only a skirt and jeans jacket on. I thought it would be fun to take a bus to the top of Chamrousse to check out the snow. Public transportation is very good here. Brian warned that we really were not prepared to go to 1700 meters in the winter, but I said, not to worry. We will just take the nice warm bus to the top, see the snow, hang out in the lodge and return less than an hour later. Well...easier said than done, the next bus was not for three hours at 5:30 and then it never appeared. CRAP. There is no such thing as a nice warm ski lodge to hang out in in France, only bars and small restaurants, luckily they don't mind how long you stay. Click here to hear Megan's phone call to her dad (her English is getting bad, I hope she meant to say "us" and not "me"!

It really was beautiful on top of Chamrousse, this is the view down to the valley.

Brian did get Megan's message and we were rescued some 5 hours after arriving. Jeff and Megan did go sledding, skirt and all. Jeff did have a jacket but he had donated it to Megan. What a brother.
