Ready, Get Set!

Some of us like to look at Purple Mountain Majesty from afar and some of us are never settled until they can get a good close up, personal look see! Such is the case when SB and I were in Chamonix, France, a resort area near the junction of France, Switzerland, and Italy. I was content to stay in the chalet cottage and indulge in the spa treatments and look at the mountain, while SB was twitching to get up on Mont Blanc. Then he decided he would also paraglide down, just for fun.

“Did I want to go up?” he asked.

“No, I will watch you from right here, at the chalet,” my reply. “I’ll watch for you and take pictures.”

Purple Mountain Majesty, also spelled Purple Mountains’ Majesty and Purple Mountain’s Majesty has been in the Crayola Collection since 1993. It is also known as Pencilvania Purple in the special “Colors of Binney & Smith.
