Gorges de la Nesque

Yesterday we went walking in the Gorges de la Nesque.  Here we are resting at the bottom of the cliffs that we'd just dropped down to along a steep, narrow and twisty track.

This is the Nesque itself, right down at the bottom of the gorge.  In the height of summer, at this point it will completely submerge and only run underground through its gravel bed, which makes crossing easier.

... Lindsay and Ruth making the treacherous crossing!

This is the path back out of the gorge...

Another rest

For more pictures of the Gorges de la Nesque, including the little 12th Century chapel at the bottom, look at our Picassa album for pictures that I took last year when I was there with a group of guests.
