Here we are in the heat of summer, and it reminded me of a hot time we had in France last year.
We usually visit France in the spring or fall, avoiding crowds, but in southern France, it can get plenty warm even in the spring.
The one hot day on our last visit, was the day we decided to hike up Mont Ste. Victoire near Aix en Provence.
|From here, the top of the mountain seems so far away.|
|We had some trouble finding the beginning of the trail, but eventually we|
saw a sign that assured us we were headed to the cross on top of the mountain.
|Once up on the mountain, we could see the nuclear power plant in the distance.|
|As close as we got before we climbed back down the mountain.|
And after we finished our hike up Mont Sainte Victoire, we stopped for ice cream, of course.
