Summer 2005

A few late season strolls about the misty countryside


You may not find this terribly rewarding unless you're included here, so this is a good time for casual and random browsers to turn back before they get too caught up in the sweep and majesty of the proceedings and can't let go.

Rob and Elke in the fog

Rob's come for a brief visit and we're out wandering about in the fog for a while near Petit Cunay in the Jura, 17 September 2005.

Mont Tendre (probably)

Dr Pirri has just walked up through the forest from near the village of Montricher and is standing in the vicinity of the farm of Pré Anselme, which ought to be around here somewhere. 19 September 2005.

At last a landmark, the Chalet du Mont Tendre, with its restaurant montagnard welcoming visitors to its pleasant terrasse on a Saturday afternoon, minus the visitors (except us).

The wall-cow can be a little disconcerting looming out of the mist. It seems to be trying to ask some kind of question.

The three-sided shed near the top of Mont Tendre, with its helpful warning about not picking up unexploded munitions.

Well, time to go home now. Uhhhhh......

Thoroughly lost whilst descending through the trackless foggy forests, another landmark -- trees growing out of a nice big rock -- puts us on the right way to finding the car again before Thursday.
