Just under the Grand Morgon, the Morgonnet is a smaller mount easier to access and that still offers a great panoramic view of the Lac de Serre Poncon.
This lac is in the Southern French Alps near the small city of Embrun and between Briancon and Gap the 2 bigger cities of the area.
The department is surrounded by the following French departments: Alpes-de-Haute-Provence, Drôme, Isère, and Savoie. Italy borders it on the east. Hautes-Alpes is located in the Alps mountain range. The average elevations is over 1000 m, and the highest elevation is over 4000 m. The only three sizable towns are Gap, Briançon, and Embrun, which was the subprefecture until 1926. The third highest commune in all of Europe is the village of Saint-Véran. Gap and Briançon are the highest prefecture and subprefecture in France. Source : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hautes-Alpes
