Out of the Jurisdiction: The Second Day of Hiking in the Luberon

It drizzled off and on.  The paths were sometimes a bit slippery.  But,
Provence has had an extreme drought, so they need the rain.  It was still beautiful.



The day began with a walk up the steep streets of Bonnieux, 
a sleepy Provençal town little visited by tourists.


Near the top, Bonnieux offered a nice view into the lower town and across the valley.


 The day's hiking included walks on small paved and dirt roads, narrow woodland paths like this, 
and rocky climbs on Roman ways.




At the end of the hike, we had some striking vistas showing the rock vertical face of the Luberon.

I find myself wondering if climbing that vertical face is allowed.

Looks like a great walk as long as you could stay reasonably dry.

An interesting vista around every corner in those little hill villages.

This looks like a gorgeous hike. Lucky you!

It looks like you had a very picturesque route. Little village, beautiful vistas, some natural features. The best of everything by all appearances.

I am a bit jealous of you now. You have been visiting many interesting places on this trip.
