    Visited the French region Vosges a few weeks back with our VW campervan.
    It's beautiful there and people we met were very friendly.
    We stayed on a campsite near Corcieux in the middle of the woods.
    Here's some pics to let you guys tag along.
    Hope you enjoy it as much as we did.

    General view of the area:

    Typical rural architecture found in the area

    Spotted some rowdear on one of our walks
    [​IMG]

    Had to be sharp to spot an occasional ruine between the trees
    Guinness enjoyed it even more than we did :) He's got great camouflage between these trees.

    The church of Corcieux

    Weather was ok, not warm but dry and sometimes sunny

    Lunchtime on one of our hikes... baguette and cheese
    [​IMG]

    Prepared with my trusy Spyderco Military

    Loads of blossoming (fruit)trees this time of year made it extr beautiful

    Encountered many streams in the woods there

    I'm sure my Garmin said there's a trail here :eek:
    [​IMG]

    This wild spotting tower made me laugh... there was a wood kitchen chair in it to make you comfortable :D
    [​IMG]

    Nice views
    [​IMG]

    Time for a break... Guinness' staying close :)
    [​IMG]

    Make sure you visit the local pattisier before you hit the trails :D
    The french sure know what's delicious!

    Some ruin at the summit of the hill we 'climbed'

    Anyone notice the many pinetrees?
    [​IMG]

    And remains of wildlife

    The trip was wonderful and I can recommend the area for walking/hiking.
    We had a great time.
    Hope you enjoyed the pics.

    The woods certainly looks interesting with all the moss and low greenery. I imagine that the boulder field is glacial related.

    Looks like you had a great day and thanks for sharing!

    The rocks are remains from glacial 'transport' yes.

    We have one of those "upside down rivers " here in eastern PA in the HAWK Mountain sanctuary .That's one of the best hawk migration areas in the country and has interesting hiking areas.

    Some of the trees definitely look like Norway Spruce (picea abies). What other species of spruce and/or fir did you see?

    I can't tell the different spruce species apart, sorry.
    I do know the were shedding loads and loads of yellow pollen, more then I've ever seen. Clouds of yellow blowing through the air.
