My husband and I went hiking this weekend, and it reminded me of the last time we hiked -- in France.
While staying in Aix en Provence, we drove out to Mont Ste. Victoire. From far away, it looks like a massive, imposing rock.
Up close, it looks even more intimidating.
The climb was really difficult, yet we were passed by people
who were trail running from rock to rock up and down the mountain.
This lake reflecting the mountain felt peaceful and cool as we began the ascent.
I've been on a number of mountains, but the top of this one
seemed to get farther and farther away as we climbed.
Here's a shot of my husband hiking up the mountain ahead of me. The trail became much more treacherous as we scrambled up rocks.
We never reached the top, but that's my fault. I wimped out.Nice view though. Definitely worth the hike. I'll try again another time.
Thanks for playing along with Dreaming of France. I really appreciate your participation and I hope you'll leave a comment plus visit each other's blogs.
