Tr Esteril Mountains
Just got back tonight from the sunny French Riviera ( 3070 miles round
trip by car ).
After spending best part of two weeks in 30 degrees, under brilliant
blue cloudless skies we arrived back to a rainy , windswept Crieff and
find that you lot have been playing in the snow !
I stayed just west of Cannes, right in the foothills of the Esteril
Mountains and although they are just 2000 ft at the highest point
their are some superb craggy little outcrops of volcanic rock in deep
reds and whites. Lots of forestation but plenty of forest tracks as
well. These are indeed beautiful hills but as it was really too hot
to walk I spent most of the time on the beach or in the cafe's. ( plus
it was a family holiday ) Did take a boat trip to Monaco and came
out of the famous Monte Carlo Casino 40 euros up on the day so all was
not lost !
Looking forward to this weekend and hopefully a short trip into the
snow ! Yippee !
