Another exhilarating walk yesterday in the warm November sunshine!

This circuit started in Saurat just down the road from Tarascon. After quite a steep climb which tested the knees 4 hours later we reached La Tour de Montorgeuil before a final easy descent back to Saurat. 

On the far side of the first mountain we encountered there are magnificent vertical cliffs ideal for lovers of escalades.  The little red speck in the photo above is one member of several groups of climbers we came across. 

This is the view from the highest point on the other side of the valley, looking south at Mont Sédour.

There are many limestone caves in this area including the famous Grotte de Niaux, Grotte de la Vache, Grotte de Bédeilhac and Grotte de Lombrives - all well worth a visit.
