Photo of the Week: Col de Iseran, French Alps 2009

Church, Col de Iseran

As a former competing cyclist the lure of the French Alps drew us there in 2009 for a more relaxed driving holiday within Europe.  Alongside driving the old military roads on the Italian border and the highest accessible point in Europe I wanted to drive some of the Tour de France main mountain passes in the region. The col de Bonnette, col de Parpilon, Col de Izord etc.

This photo is from the top of the Col de Iseran in late August. There is a TDF Museum here also but it was closed when we arrived as it was late in the season.
