Gorges du Verdon

We've been to the Gorges du Verdon before, once with Simon and Shusheel and in once with my mother. This time we dragged along our good friend Benoit who spent a few days with us in summer 2004. The gorge is only 90 minutes north-west of our home.

This (below) was our first stopping place, the Point Sublime.

Our next stop was at the top of a 750 meter (2500 foot vertical cliff) - you can see some crazy people sitting on the edge.

Other crazy people, like this attractive Scandinavian below, were climbing the cliff face.

Catherine and Benoit go back a long way.
