Geneva • Former U.S. congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords, recovering from injuries in a mass shooting last year, has ventured into the French Alps.
Officials at the European Center for Nuclear Research said Tuesday the outing by Giffords, her astronaut husband Mark Kelly and daughter Claire was organized as part of a visit to CERN outside Geneva.
Giffords, who held an Arizona seat in Congress for more than four years, rode a cable car Monday up the 12,605-foot Aiguille du Midi outside Chamonix, France.
