I mentioned in my article on watching the Etape du Tour how I could probably stand at the finish line all day long, marveling in the variety of people (and their emotions) crossing the line. I am sure I could do the same thing on Ventoux on a busy day. The following 5 photos were taken withing a minute and a half of each other. This is what you get on this mountain.
And something new for 2015. The town of Bédoin has spruced up this abandoned hut, next to the fountain above Chalet Reynard, and turned it into a little mountain flower expo of sorts.
Finally, I think today was the craziest I’ve ever seen the top of Ol’ Baldy, and that’s saying something. You basically had to take a number to get yourself in front of the ‘1911 meters’ sign.
