This week’s Monday Mountains features majestic Monte Rosa (Mont Rose), the second highest mountain in the Alps and of Europe, with its main summit (Dufour Peak) rising to 4,634 m (15,203 ft) above sea level. The mountain is on the border between France (Valais Region) and Italy (Piedmont and Aosta Valley Regions). From the Swiss side Monte Rosa can be reached from Zermatt which also sports the world famous Matterhorn.
I took this photo on a freezing morning (15 degrees Fahrenheit) from the Italian ski resort of Champoluc. The wind was blowing ice clouds off the mountain.
Let me see your Monday Mountains…post a link in the comment section and make this a new WordPress regular category.
The Streets of Nuremberg passed another mile stone yesterday, reaching 1000 followers. A sincere “Thank you” to all of you, that is simply blowing me away. I would have never thought this would happen when I started this blog just about one year ago.
Have a great week!
