Rhone valley and Haute Provence

12th to 17th October

We spent a night camped halfway across the Rhone where it was split into two by the Iles Margeries. Then it was uphill again as we headed towards Sisteron and the the Alps. All around were beautiful autumn colours and vineyards with the vines heavy with grapes.

We passed Mont Ventoux which has a road going to 1900m to the observatory on top. We didn't take it though because we were hurrying to get to the Alps before the passes were closed by snow.
