Col du Galibier | Northern slope

WI_fr040_049.jpg

View from the N side of the Col du Galibier road in NE direction. The pronounced soil erosion visible in parts of the photograph might be related to overgrazing by sheep. The rugged landform on the left side indicates the extremely pronounced karstification of an exposed gypsum layer.
