Roche de La Gardette - Black and White

Located in the French Alps, the Ecrins National Park is one of the most beautiful mountain parks to visit.
All around the Meije glacier, a great range of mountains and peaks seem to always stretch to the clouds. La Roche de La Gardette is one of them.
Its peak reaches an altitude of 10,000 feet (3046m) and is often covered in snow and ice, but in the summer, only the chiseled rock and sheer cliffs will show.
The spruce- and larch-covered slopes stand out against the neighboring mountains.
A magnificent park in all seasons.
