A Second visit to the top of Ventoux

I cannot get enough of the top of this mountain.  There are 3 excellent paved roads to the top, well travelled by cyclists, motos and autos.  

Shops along the Seine

It's all about the Tours of yesteryear along the Seine.  The entire history of French glory years at the TdF can be purchased for exorbitant euro prices.

Ominousity atop Ventoux

The mysterious building

The wind has blown the building off vertical. 


On top of Mt. Ventoux

The view from 300 meters above sea level

 An example of some of the rolling stock atop the peak.

The grim moonscape near the top.
 Drama Queen or is an ambulance required?

 The mysterious globe at the top.

The view towards Mt. Blanc in the Alps from 1912 meters.
Tourists who drove up.  The peak seems to be different heights depending on who is measuring. The trend is down likely due to global warming.
