Yesterday we went for a trip to a little town (name is beyond me!) and then climbed another mountain.
At the top of the mountain there was a cross. Not sure if that meant others didn’t make it but it wouldn’t surprise me LOL! When you consider the buildings at the base of this photo are 10 stories high, it gives you an idea of the size of the mountains!
The French think nothing of tunneling through mountains. We have been through many tunnels which would be at least 1k long on little insignificant roads in the country. Many of them have waterfalls in them so the car gets drowned and you can’t see a thing. At the town we visited yesterday, there was a ‘fun train’ ride which went right through the base of a mountain and went for several kilometres. It wasn’t open (like a lot of things in skiing areas such as this) or we might have been tempted to go for a ride (see pics).
We are off to Lyon (pron: Lyour) tomorrow for one night, and then to Paris for 4 nights. This will finish our time in France and Italy and begin our time in the UK. More pics…
