    Stuffed owl in the Alpine Fauna Museum

    Favorite thing: The Alps have an exceptional geology, flora and fauna, which can be appreciated in the region of the Mont Blanc.
    In order to protect this natural environment the Reserve Naturelle del Aiguilles Rouges, covering over 300 hectares, was created in 1974. More natural reserves have been added, so this first one is now surrounded by the natural reserves of Passy, Carlaveyron and Vallon de Bérard.
    For those who want to learn about the local flora and fauna there are discovery routes, guided by volunteers. For information you can contact asso.ar@free.fr.

    Alpine flowers

    Chamonix

    Favorite thing: Wild azaleas, violets, blue gentian, white anemomes and lots of other flowers I don't know the English name of... the Alps are a colored paradise.
    The edelweiss is rare. I found it only once. Had no digital camera at that time. Too bad.
    Picking prohibited.
    More Alpine flowers in my travelogues.
