The Champsaur is an area in the Southern Alps in the Drac river valley, located north of the city of Gap and at the foot of the Vieux Chaillol (3163m), emblematic summit of the valley, visible in the center of the photo on the home page taken from Coste Belle.
If you are in the Champsaur, why not walk along the "Vivian Maier trails" : Vivian Maier routes
The Valgaudemard is an alpine valley situated in the heart of the massif of the Ecrins with the Séveraisse, a tumultuous river of glacial origin passing through the bottom of the valley, and it is dominated by majestic peaks such as Olan (3564 m), Rouies (3589 m), Bans (3669 m), Sirac (3441 m). Because of its location in the Ecrins National Park, this valley is an ideal place where each and every photographer can capture an image of its impressive mountain peaks, of the beauty of its waterfalls, and not to mention the richness of its flora and fauna.
