Last week, my husband, son and I took a quick trip to the Alps, which are only about five hours away from the Auvergne. Granted, the Auvergne has its famous chain of volcanoes, but the Alps are impressive and its highest peak, the Mont Blanc ((15,782.3 ft), also called "la dame blanche",  is worth a trip.

Taking small roads, we made it through Grenoble, Albertville and Annecy, which is just lovely. In between there are charming towns and beautiful valleys.
