Okay, I admit, I am grasping at straws for this final letter of the alphabet. I've been all over my photos trying to find one that has the semblance of a z about it and finally I found this one.
When I was in France last year, the group wanted to climb the Mont Ventoux. Well, they would climb the last five kilometers, while I drove up and waited. The whole road up to the top was full of bends and curves and it zig zagged up to the top. Fortunately no real hairpins, although a few were quite hairy.
The Mont Ventoux is most well known for its inclusion in the Tour de France, the most famous cycle race in the world. In 1967 a combination of fatigue and drugs proved fatal to British Tom Simpson who died.
While the bottom of the mountain is nice and green with a lot of trees, the top of the mountain is almost completely barren.
