Pics from France

We went for a walk today, from and to the Col de Gleize.
About 1600+ meters of col, ready for me to drive to in my trusty Clio.

It’s like my dad said, those French will drive to anywhere. Including a 800 metre ascend on the tiniest of roads. Let’s say there were just wide enough to fit my car. 🙂

We saw this tiny walkway up to a thing called Pic de Gleize, which was about 500 meters higher. We went up there, and it was great!
The wildlife was astonishing, with lots of butterflies, lizards and even alpine marmots!

The marmot was about 15 meters away from us, and was silently sitting there, like he knew we were ok people, but he (?) didn’t fully trust us.
It’s a privilege to be able to come that close to wildlife like that. Needless to say, it was a total fluke for me to find the marmot, as I looked over a ledge for actually once the entire 3 hour trip.  😉

We’ve not dicided what to do tomorrow yet, but when the pics are nice, I’ll share them 😀

  1. Those are some nice pictures! I’ll share some of my own (Fuji) when I get back 🙂
    I didn’t have any marmots though, I didn’t even know they still lived in the wild like that 😮

    Thanks for the comment EER, where are you right now? Still on your holiday, or back already?
    I’d love to see the pictures!

  3. I have returned last friday, have kept a journal all the way so I’ll type that out somewhere this week. I am kind of a wreck now though (lack of sleep, jetlaggish, yet working) so I don’t know when that’ll be…
