Whenever I walk or run with Maurice he usually talks me into going further than I wanted to. On this particular day we decided to walk to the top of the mountain behind our house. We have to drive over it to get to Cereste or Apt and it’s pretty steep. I climbed to the top of it once by myself a couple of years ago. I’m not sure what made us decide to try it but the whole hike ended up being two hours long and I spent the rest of the day moaning and groaning everytime I stood up from sitting. At the top of the hill is a fabulous view and of course I didn’t have my camera so somehow we did the climb again so I could take photos.
I was ready to head down the way we came but Maurice saw a sign pointing on a hiking trail back to our village. Here and there on trees or rocks you will see colored stripes which tell you that you are on the right trail. It doesn’t always work for us though. We’ve gotten very lost in spite of them.
