Le téléphérique du Salève

We decided not to wait for the perfect air clarity in order to go to a téléphérique du Salève, which is a cable car that goes on the top of Salève mountain, known as the balcony of Geneva. Indeed, one can see the whole city from the station, as well as a good deal of Lac Leman shore.
A cable car ride is fun of its own, it goes very quickly and steeply. When we reached the top we headed staright to a view point on Mont Blanc, which was situated 15 minutes away walking from the main station. The mountain was a bit covered by the clouds, we tried to wait for the wind to blow them away, but it didn't look like that, so we came back to the station site to watch para-gliders and Geneva.
