A trip to Geneva is not about the nightlife or crazy experiences.
No, it's about experiencing the stoic beauty of an amazing urban environment.
And I did that. I definitely did that for much of my trip.
But there is also a big-ass mountain nearby with a cable car waiting to take tourists up to the summit.
And I did that too.
In our last day in Geneva, we split it in half between more architectural marvels and the best that nature had to offer.
And nature won.
But regardless, I hope you enjoy the pics of both of the aspects that this Swiss treasure has to offer.

Things To Do In Geneva: The Mont-Salève Cable Car
Mont Saleve is one of the multiple mountains bordering Geneva. It's just across the border in France and is part of the French Prealps, a range of medium sized mountains.
I'd highly recommend it. Especially if you are the outdoors-y type.
You can go rock climbing, biking, hiking, and even paragliding, and there is a restaurant at the top with some excellent food for the entire family.
Don't have your own car or not in the mood to trudge up a massive mountain while you're on vacation? No problem. The Mont-Seleve Cable Car takes you up to near the summit, and all the attractions are a short walk away.
On the morning that we went, the weather was crisp and visibility was obstructed, but as the day went on, the sky cleared up and we were treated to some excellent views.
These are easily some of the best photos from our trip so far.

Restaurant Le Mont-Saleve
We didn't spend a lot of money on food while in Geneva, but when you hike up a French mountain for almost an hour, you get hungry.
The restaurant was quirky and warm. The meal was delicious.

Coming from Indiana, this is the first real mountain that I've ever been on.
The experience? Dope. The view? Also dope. My immaculate photographs? The dopest.
