ventoux




the monument of the mistral, the peak of petrarch's ascent, the giant of provence -- coming this saturday. it is, as a matter of understatement, "not like other climbs". the forecast high for carpentras on saturday is 95 degrees.

To race over the bare summit of the mountain in a heat wave is to defy death itself.

Driven around this area...incredibly tough terrain.

Will pass by on my way to Spain this August :)
