unpaved trail over Col du Grand Ferret (2537m)

Glacier du Dolent, with Mont Dolent (3823m) above,
looking northwest from near Rifugio Elena at Pre de Bar

Monte Bianco / Mont Blanc (4810m) from lower on the paved road up Val Ferret
from la Palud, with Aiguille Noire and Peuterey ridge lower to its left

Monte Bianco and Mont Dolent are part of the same mountain group, but
Monte Bianco is about 15 km to the southwest and much higher.
