Geography Trips to Study the French Alps

Geography trips to the French Alps are an opportunity for students to improve their understanding of glaciated landscapes and the associated landforms by seeing and studying them for themselves. From dry ski slopes to rivers and gorge formations, the French Alps offer a wealth of options for youngsters seeking to expand their knowledge. Students can also examine the human uses of glaciated areas, and how the lifestyles of people living there are affected by their surroundings. Some potential highlights of geography trips to the French Alps are outlined below.

Gorges du Fier

Considered one of the natural wonders of the Alps, the Gorges du Fier is a stunning gorge carved by the River Fier. Youngsters can walk along a footbridge attached to the side of the gorge, giving excellent views of its features: stacked boulders, the play of light on the gorge walls, the circular ‘Giants’ Kettles’ eroded into the rock by the action of water bearing stones over extended periods of time, and the river running at the gorge’s base.

Gorges du pont du Diable

Another stunning gorge in the French Alps is Gorges du pont du Diable, gouged into grey marble amid a beautiful forest. It creates a link between the Leman’s Lake area and the Chablais Massifs. It can be admired from a footbridge over the rushing river.

Mer de Glace

The Mer de Glace (‘Sea of Ice’) is France’s longest glacier, at seven kilometres long and 200 metres deep, and is an excellent destination for geography trips in the Alps. Easily reachable by the Montenvers Train, it is located in the Chamonix Valley. It originates high in the mountains at an elevation of 2,400 metres and is fed by the confluence of three glaciers. It is renewed by accumulation and ablation, creating crevasses and seracs as it progresses downslope. It is also used for electricity generation, with tunnels bored under the ice to collect water from the glacier’s base and channel it to a hydropower plant downriver: a classic case of human use of the glacial landscape. Students visiting the glacier can also take a cable car to explore an ice grotto.

Barrage d’Emosson

Further evidence of people in the mountains using their landscape can be seen at Barrage d’Emosson, an impressive dam used for hydropower. The dam became operational in 1975. Water collected from the Mont Blanc massif is channelled into a reservoir lake at an altitude of 1,930 metres, which is controlled by the dam. This water is then used to power Vallorcine Power Station and La Bâtiaz Power Station. Visiting the dam on geography trips gives students a good sense of the scale of hydropower operations, as well as the stunning Alpine views around the reservoir.

Eight Ways to Style a Scarf

A beautiful scarf is the perfect accessory for any outfit, but you may only know a few ways to tie one. Molly Borter, a content writer for Scarves.net, the largest online specialty scarf store, encourages people to experiment with new looks that go beyond the basic knot or the simple loop.

This simple way to style a scarf is perfect for light weight rectangular scarves

Start with the scarf around the back of your neck with both ends hanging down. Loop one end around the other twice and then bring it up through the bottom of the neck loop and over the knot that has been created. Spread the top end over the bottom end to create the ascot. “I love to do this knot with scarves that have some metallic in them so it shows off the knot.

Four in Hand

Take a long rectangular scarf and fold it in half and place it around your neck so that one end is a loop and the other end is the two ends. Take one of the two ends of the scarf and bring it through the loop. Twist the loop itself so it creates another loop and bring the second end of the scarf through that loop. This look is perfect for a pashmina-style scarf, and it’s an easy way to make a fancy-looking knot. “I teach all my family and friends this one,” Borter says.

Infinity Shrug

Infinity scarves have become very stylish in the last few years, and you might think the only way to wear it is as a double or triple loop around your neck. But you can easily turn that infinity scarf into a makeshift shrug by holding the scarf behind your back and bringing your arms through each loop. This style is great with a sleeveless dress or for a wedding because it covers your shoulders. “It’s very versatile.

Fancy Braid

Take a long lightweight scarf and tie a knot adjusting the loop around your neck so that it is about the size of the finished look. Take the right end of the scarf and bring it over the left end of the scarf at the knot, then bring it through the bottom of the neck loop and over to the front. Take the left end of the scarf and bring it over the right end of the scarf, and repeat as before. Repeat until you’ve run out of material and tie to finish. Stretch out the braid to show off this pretty look.

Muffler

This look is stylish and it keeps your neck and chest extra warm by trapping air inside its natural ripples. Fold a square scarf in half on the diagonal to create a triangle. Bring the folded edge to the front of your neck and tie the ends around the back of your neck. You can keep the ends hanging behind you, or bring them to the front and hide them underneath the muffler. This is a really pretty way to show off a scarf, especially if it has tassels at the end.

Double Wrap French Knot

Take a square silk scarf and fold it into a long thin rectangle that is the width that you want to cover your neck. Place the scarf around the front of your neck and pass two ends of the scarf behind your neck and bring them to the front. Tie a knot on one side of your neck and adjust the ends until you feel like Audrey Hepburn. “This is very French inspired.

Chain Knot

Take a rectangular scarf and hang it around the back of your neck. Twist the two ends twice close to your neck, bring the ends behind your neck and tie them. The look is great for clothes that have a deeper neckline, Borter says. “Gorgeous necklines need to be shown off, so the fact that the chain knot ties at the back of your neck, allows for you to still accessorize with a scarf without covering up your outfit.

Knot Row

Place the scarf around the back of your neck leaving both ends hanging down the front. Tie the scarf into a few knots down the front of your body, making sure they are of similar size and evenly spaced. This is a great look for the warmer months because it isn’t too bulky and it can easily dress up a plain T-shirt or blouse, Borter says. “I love how you can add more knots down the row for a more dramatic feel.

A Perfect Coat for Every Body

In cold weather, women rely more on outerwear to make a fashion statement. And although few women look like actress Marie Cotillard in a coat (pictured here) whatever your shape, there’s a style that will flatter you most. Also keep in mind that you may need more than one coat for the season. For example, if you’re wearing a dress and have exposed legs, a longer coat will keep you warmer. The same long coat, however, can look bulky with a heavy sweater and jeans.

Peacoat

Actress Gina Gershon sports a winter favorite here: the peacoat. “A peacoat flatters most full-figured and pear-shaped ladies,” said Jess Zaino, style producer for ABC’s “The Chew” and founder of Cheap Chic Shopping Tours. “They give structure to the shoulders and balance a thick waist and big hips.”

Trench

The classic trench, worn here by actress Dianna Agron, flatters all body shapes. “The sexy, fitted belt at the waist accentuates a super feminine, hourglass figure,” said Zaino. “If you’re petite, look for a hemline that hits above the knee to avoid looking smaller.”

Parka

Actress Ariel Winter looks trendy in this puffy blue parka. While it works on many shapes, note that the volume does add width to your frame. “Avoid a loose fit, which will leave you looking shapeless,” Zaino said. She also said that long parkas look best on taller women, so keep it cropped if you’re petite.

Cropped Fur Coat

“A cropped fur is so very Hollywood,” said Zaino, but she noted that it can be tricky to pull off for some sizes. Model Jessica White, who is tall and slim, wears it well. “Make sure the sleeves fit [so] as not to look childish and that the hemline hits at or above the waist to show off curves instead of hiding them.”

Cape Coat

Italian TV personality Miriam Leone is seen here wearing a vintage-inspired white cape. “Capes work on slight and curvy frames, petite and tall women, and will work even if you are between sizes,” said Zaino. She added that it’s an especially appropriate coat during transitional weather and works well as a layering piece.

Bracelet Sleeve

Notice how the sleeves on this coat stop at the elbow and show off what TV personality Kris Jenner is wearing underneath, hence the name “bracelet sleeve.” This coat is ideal for layering and perfect for climates that aren’t especially cold. Because of the extra volume, it looks best on tall and narrow frames.

Cropped Coat

“A short tweed style is the ultimate statement in luxury style,” noted Zaino. This type of light coat looks best on an athletic frame, like actress Maria Bello’s. Zaino suggested pairing it with chic heels and pearls for a sophisticated cold-weather ensemble.

Wrap Coat

“Like Diane von Furstenberg’s iconic wrap dress, the wrap coat is universally flattering on all body types and sizes,” said Zaino. Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, looks polished, and her waist is accentuated. “The diagonal line formed by the classic coat’s closure slims and trims, while the belt at the waist gives a woman an ultra-feminine silhouette.”
