Road to the Tourmalet
The Tourmalet translates from Gascon to English as "Distance Mountain".
The Pic du Midi Observatory can be seen on the distant mountain in this picture.
The road over the Tourmalet passes not far below the observatory, so you can get a good idea of how far you will need to climb.
