Hiking etc..

yesterday it was really sunny, so we decided to hike around in the neighborhood. we had a very brief description of several hikes around mont royal. choose one that would lead us down into the valley and back up again. in 3 hours. there were hardly signs so we choose the wrong turn a few times and had to go back. finally down we were not where we were supposed to be, according to the description... the names of most villages are somewhere on their vineyards, like above, but ofcourse we couldnt see any during our hike. and surely it started to rain while we left all rain clothes, umbrellas etc in the car. the clouds looked more threatening than it eventually was, but we didnt find the path back up and had to walk along the road. beeeehhh. that was not what we had planned. after 11.5 km we were back up.
then we drove around the neighborhood a bit, while we drove on this narrow bridge i took this pic.

The sky looks pretty blue here. Is that huge cross a church too half way the mountain?

Nice image here, CaT. The white jumps out against an otherwise dark scene. Sorry about the rain interfering with the hike.

Beautiful shot! It's hard to believe you were walking in the rain earlier, though we have a lot of weather like that here. Too bad you were at the mercy of bad signs. That can be frustrating, especially if you don't repeatedly remind yourself "it's the journey, not the destination." Even then it's still annoying.
