Ride the Tour de France High Passes. 'Tourmalet remains one of the classic Tour ascents, drawing hordes of cycling pilgrims, as does Col du Galibier, the first Alpine climb introduced into the race (in 1911). Prime among the other famed climbs are the Alpe d’Huez (first raced in 1952) and Mont Ventoux (1951), rising mighty above the Rhône valley. All four passes have been ranked hors categorie, meaning they’re so steep as to be beyond classification.' http://www.lonelyplanet.com/france

The Stelvio Pass (Italian: Passo dello Stelvio; German: Stilfser Joch) is a mountain pass in northern Italy, at an elevation of 2,757 m (9,045 ft) above sea level. It is the highest paved mountain pass in the Eastern Alps, and the second highest in the Alps, just 13 m (43 ft) below France's Col de l'Iseran (2,770 m (9,088 ft)).

Climate change forecasts tend to focus on how the world will look in a century, but some places need evaluation now.
NASA image acquired July 12, 2011 If you have never been north of the Arctic Circle, it is easy to imagine that the “ice cap” at the top of the world is a uniform sheet of white. The reality, particularly during the spring and summer melt, is a mottled landscape of white, teal, slate gray, green, and navy. The sea ice atop the Arctic Ocean can—as shown in this photograph from July 12, 2011—look more like swiss cheese or a bright coastal wetland. As ice melts, the liquid water collects in depressions on the surface and deepens them, forming melt ponds. These fresh water ponds are separated from the salty sea below and around it, until breaks in the ice merge the two. Researchers on the NASA-funded ICESCAPE mission—Impacts of Climate on Ecosystems and Chemistry of the Arctic Pacific Environment—have been examining melt ponds, the ice around them, and the waters below for three weeks, with three more to go. Carried by the U.S. Coast Guard Cutter Healy, a team of oceanographers, marine biologists, and glaciologists are investigating how changing conditions in the Arctic affect the ocean’s chemical and biological makeup. The science team collects water samples to examine water chemistry and to observe the colonies of plankton growing in the water and on the surfaces of the ice. Other instruments are used to assess how much and how far sunlight is penetrating into—and warming—the Arctic Ocean. Still others are measuring the current systems that move water from the depths to the surface, as well as horizontally across the Beaufort and Chukchi Seas. Incidentally, the crew members in the photo are not harvesting data; they are collecting supplies. A C-130 airplane flew by earlier in the day, dropping a parachuted canister of hardware for fixing instruments and other machinery on the icebreaker.

Scientists at McGill University, Montreal, have said they can say with overwhelming confidence that climate change is the result of man-made emissions. Published in the journal Climate Dynamics, the researchers analysed temperature data since 1500. Their findings almost completely rule out the possibility that global warming in the industrial era is a natural fluctuation in the planet’s climate.

The view down Dragon Falls, Venezuela; this photo gives me vertigo!
harvestheart: Dragon Falls are part of the Angel Falls located in Venezuela. This Venezuela watterfals are biggest in the world with height of little above 3,200 ft. Waterfalls drops from the edge of Auyantepui mountain in the Canaima National Park. Whole region is under UNESCO World Heritage. Salto ÁngelKerepakupai Vená - HH: I like the angle of this photo
