The View From Alpe d'Huez

These photos are actually from last November just after the first snow. There's more snow now, and I'll post those pictures soon! I've been meaning to post this batch for weeks, but between bouncing around France, Italy, the UK, and California... I just haven't gotten around to it till now. I arrived back in France on Friday night, and the first place British guy and I headed to was Alpe d'Huez. We went for a short ski on Saturday, and as I stood looking out over these beautiful mountains all I could think about was sharing that moment with everyone I know.








So now you can see why I have a love/hate relationship with this place. When I'm trying to cycle up, it's my arch nemesis....but when I'm standing out and looking over the expanse of these mountains, I'm absolutely in love.
