Snow on the Aubrac Plateau

Although we didn't enjoy a white Christmas in Aveyron this year, we were able to admire the snow on the Aubrac plateau. We live about forty-five minutes from this small mountain chain, and I am comforted when, despite global warming, I can get a glimpse of snow on the mountaintops. It's a beautiful place to ski and hike, and in spite of the increasing presence of tourists, it retains its authentic atmosphere.
