The beautiful country

 (Click to view larger version...)
Seen from the entrance of the ITER Headquarters, the Massif des Écrins, with summits between 3,000 and 4,100 meters, glimmers in the evening light. The buildings of the Vinon-sur-Verdon aeroclub are at the forefront.

The Barre des Écrins (Alt. 4102 m), the highest summit in the range, was France's highest until 1860 when, following the annexation of the Duchy of Savoy, it was dethroned by the Mont Blanc (Alt. 4807 m).

The Vinon-sur-Verdon aeroclub is at the forefront of the picture; center right is the village of Villeneuve.
