After doing pretty much nothing yesterday, today was very much active.
We went to La Chapelle en Valgaudemar, and some further to reach a hotel sitting on a perking rock, looking out over the two stretches of valley it was sitting in.
The road to the hotel was terrible, very small and treacherously high without decent side protection. One could very easily drop off and tumble a few hundred meters down. Anyway, we survived that.
The trip went to a small lake, Lac du Lauzon, which was about a 90 minute trip one-way, and about an hour back. It was filled (the trip, not the lake) with lovely scenery and great views. Below a small assorti of the 250 shots we made together. 😉
Oh, and not to forget this: below our view of our part of Gap, when all trees would be cut down. 🙂
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.Â 😉
We’ve not dicided what to do tomorrow yet, but when the pics are nice, I’ll share them 😀
