The Alps

We drove through the Italian and French Alps on our drive back from Italy to Paris.  Lush green mountains cascaded up to snow-capped mountains, which made me feel like I was dreaming.  Even the warm May air did not scare the billowy snow clouds away.  I was excited to see Mont Blanc, the highest mountain in the Alps. In order to get to the other side you drive through a 30-minute tunnel and once you exit you are greeted with undulating valleys with brave hand gliders overhead.  Here are just a few of the images that I managed to snap while hanging my head out our Renault rental car.
