Mount Ventou

IMG_3671

We went to Mount Ventou. It is the hardest leg of the Tour de France bicycle race and there were lots of cyclists climbing it all the way up to the top. It looked very hard.

We parked near the top at a chalet and went for a walk to the top. We didn’t make it the whole way but we climbed very far uphill and it was hard. We heard the sound of bells and there were sheep with bells around their necks and they were being herded by dogs across the path. It was fun walking through the sheep as they made music. We got to the top and Jasper found a sheep skull. He was very excited. He said that the sheep was very lucky to have died on Mount Ventou because it is very famous and it’s like dying on a stage (but it was also a bit sad for the sheep). Dad didn’t let us take the sheep skull home but we took some of its teeth to remember our walk and the sheep.

We drove to summit after that and we looked out over the French Alps where some of the mountains are 4000m high. Mount Ventou was 1900m high.

Mum and dad were very proud of how far we walked.

  1. There are some FABULOUS photos of the little ones. Thank you. Tell Jasper his paternal grandfather used to make a meal (quite literally) of a boiled sheep’s head! His favorite morsels were the eyes! No kidding!
