Lac de Lauzon, Valgaudemar

The view from the Lac de Lauzon (2020 m.) of part of the Cirque glacière de Gioberney at the end of the valley of Valgaudemar, deep in the Ecrins mountains between the French Alps and Provence. A satisfying hike passing many waterfalls fed from the glaciers above the cirque. The view above shows a part of the panorama facing us for our lunchtime picnic. That's the Glacier de la Cobdamine: we were treated to a view including five different glaciers, all looking similarly depleted by the succession of hot summers, aka Global Warming.
