Le Cantal Photos

These mountains are full of cows,

horses,

and sheep.

On the top of the Plomb du Cantal. To be honest there was a gondola just behind me but we walked up anyway.

You could walk forever along these ridges.

Volcanic peaks all around.

Some of the hiking got quite steep.

This is a buron. In the past the shepard stayed up here all summer and made his cheese.

The summer flowers are beautiful.

These roofs last for centuries so why bother redoing the whole thing at once?

An ancient four au pain where they used to bake bread.

Tarte aux myrtilles. A just reward for a hard hike.

as is a Perrier Cassis at the end.

Cheeses from the Auverne.
