Lake Garda and Valleys Amidst the Peaks of the Alps, Italy45.5N 10.6E
As winter ends and spring begins in the northern hemisphere, the snow in the valleys of the Italian Alps clears, making the green vegetation of these low-lying areas visible. The peaks of the mountains, on the other hand, remain white and snow-capped.
Also visible below the mountains is Lake Garda, the largest lake in Italy. It is located in the north of the country, about half-way between Venice and Milan. The northern part of this glacier-formed lake is narrower, surrounded by mountains, the majority of which belong to the Gruppo del Baldo.
