Lovely weather for our New Year Day outing to Mont Buon. George went there with Lloyd while I was in the US in October and wanted to show it to me. It's very local to our house, and among the beautiful views I am sure our property is visible, though perhaps not the house itself due to the lie of the land. Use the pop-up to see the map of the route more clearly.
Here I am, dressed for the day in my new Wellingtons, and thermal socks.
We followed the gently climbing path around the "mountain" through beautiful autumnal (or should I say wintry?) woods...
...until we reached the summit - a staggering 209m.
Points of interest were marked along the way, including a trench, used by the Resistance**. The right hand photo shows the view of the trench at 90 degrees, a little downhill; the trench is quite invisible.
[On re-reading this I realise that perhaps I should now - some 60 years on - say "used by the French Resistance during the Second World War"!].
And here is the rolling stone and "chaos" as marked on the map.
I took a few more pictures of wildlife and views which are in the extended entry.
