Lingering fog as the sun starts hitting the mountain. This picture was taken out of my skylight (see the frame at bottom of photo).
It's a bird! It's a plane! It's super-reindeer!
Looking back at the views from the Alpe d'Huez cimb. Low-hanging clouds.

Foggy view off Alpe d'Huez.
Looking across the meadow near the top of the Alpe d'Huez climb and across Bourg d'Oisans to the mountains.

Narrow valley on Sarenne.
Looking down the descent on the far side of Sarenne.

Huge rock and old building on the Sarenne descent. If you look close on the left there are some massive waterfalls in the background.
One of the markers on Duex Alpes. I took a picture because I ride a Giant and my favorite bike shop sells the Liv line.
Selfie at the top of Deux Alpes.
I ordered a "sausage and frites". Totally disappointed it was basically a kid's item.
The receipt includes a conversion to francs- which went out of circulation over 10 years ago. Apparently some people (especially old people) still think in terms of the franc.
