I spent the latter part of my Toussaint vacation exploring more of what Ardeche has to offer, including the caves and canyons just a short drive away from Bourg-St-Andeol.
I could only describe it all as beautiful. The autumn colors were new to me (things pretty much just stay green in Arizona, except for a handful of trees) and although I have been to the Grand Canyon a few times, I found the Ardeche canyons equally fascinating.
|This cave looked like a mouth with a single tooth.|
|I stopped to take a picture of the ground because I liked the holes...|
|and then lodged my foot in a hole, tripped, and snapped this picture just as M. T was telling the kids to watch their step so that they didn't get their foot stuck in a hole. Oops.|
|The caves -- flashlight/headlamp required! Claustrophobia highly discouraged!|
|No Fraggle sightings. :(|
