It seems it will be one of these years when there is fog during 6 months or so. By fog, I mean a thick and dense one from elevation zero to around 900m high. Visibility is around 20m at best. For days and night.
In the mountains, on the other hand, it’s quite hot and snow is melting. For those lucky enough to wander in the mountains, the conditions are pristine.
Here are some snowy landscapes.
Visiting the Creux du Van is always an exiting experience for us. Until now, I let my lovely husband give me directions, and he did so by following Google Maps, which is actually one of the most stupid things to do if not used with a real map and a bit of reflexion.
We ended on icy, steepy, and closed road. Had I not stopped the car and turned around to take the lead, we would have been stuck in 40cm of snow, with no possibility to turn back.
The good news is that now I know the path by heart.
