The dying Glacier.

The <i>dying</i><font color=cyan> Glacier</font>.
Fifty years ago, the Sommeiller glacier (right) came to lick the lake of the Ambin Hill.
On its wonderful eternal snows, we skied in August.
Today, there is nothing of all this, only the memories and vintage photographs.

Susa Valley.

Thank you Chad.
It is really beautiful for me to hear from you.
I fear that the colored captions are breaking the "ghitarrini".
All the best.

EricChuExcellent panorama!

Surely you were somewhere near the Ricovero Galambra when taking this shot? Years ago I had quite an uncomfortable night there...but the walk over that plateau above 3000 meters in the evening was quite spectacular!
All the best to you, Roberto,

Ciao Eric,
i've taken this image (october 2012) at the Hill of Sommeiller (Ambin), where, one time, there was the Shelter Ambin.
Scarfiotti Shelter is on the plateau more under and you have quite right, the promenade to 3000 m. on the hill is fantastic (especially at night with a full moon).
Buona domenica.
