Med rožcami in žvižgajočimi sviczi visoko v francoskih Alpah

Francoske Alpe so priletele na program praktično minuto pred našim odhodom v Provanso. Brez kakšnega posebnega planiranja, iskanja lokacij, kaj fotografirati, kje spati… Če povem po pravici, je bil glavni razlog ta, da se s tem vsaj v eno smer izognemo tisti dolgočasni avtocesti do Monaka in naprej. 🙂 2.744 m metrov visok prelaz Col Agnel je bil končni cilj našega prvega dne. In kot že ničkolikokrat do sedaj se je tudi tokrat pokazalo, da so najboljše lokacije te, o katerih ne veš praktično nič in te ob prvem srečanju dobesedno sezujejo. Če je bila pot na italijanski strani začinjena z razbitim vetrobranskim steklom in meglenim vremenom, se je z vzponom na vrh prelaza zgodba obrnila. Fantastični pogledi na okoliške vršace, velike zaplate snega, svizci vsepovsod in polno gorskih rož. Pika na i je bila dodana le še s tem, da nismo srečali praktično nikogar. No, srečali smo le nekaj lokalnih hribolazcev, s katerimi smo si tisto prvo noč delili napol pomrznjeno lokalno parkirišče. 🙂

We didn’t plan to visit the French Alps during our Provence trip. But because I drove so many times already on the highway to Monaco (and i hate that road), we decided practically the last minute to add also some mountains. So without any special planning, where to sleep, what to see, we choose 2744 meters high pass Col Agnel that was “right” on our path to southern France. 🙂 Trip on the Italian side was one big mess. Couple of ten kilometers from the pass a stone broke our car windshield. The weather was also not on our side – it was foggy and cloudy. But when we got to the summit of the pass, the story changed. Fantastic views of the surrounding peaks, mountain flowers and marmots everywhere. And the best part was that we had that heaven just for ourselves. Well, in the evening we met couple of local climbers with whom we shared frozen parking place that night. 🙂
