Cycling the Route des Grand Alps: Stairway to Heaven

A 14-day bicycle trip from Annecy to Nice via the Route des Grand Alps. Many miles ridden, many mountains climbed. Rubion is a town built into a cliff, with narrow cobblestone streets. This photo is looking up one one of the ‘streets’ toward the hotel. One last climb before bed.
