One detour too many.

Half  way up the valley this bridge crosses the Gorge to a spur valley but we passed on by

Leaving Vars today with the intention of taking the road through Briancon and the D1091 we reached the turn off to the Col du Galibier without any intention to take this road but at the turn off to the D902 a cyclist said the 1091 was closed due to a collapsed tunnel by the Lac du Chambon. So our route home was far longer and up the Col we went counting the Marmots by the dozen. 

Chambery, Givors and Saint-Etienne motorways made up some lost time and we arrived at Gannat at about 4pm having spent 9 hours on the road. 

Memories still fresh of the previous day and just some of the photos taken.

No motorcyclists here today - the hostelry further on caters for walkers only

Very unspoilt and used mostly by walkers 

A dangerous place to go

No bungee jumpers here today or any day.

No fishermen here

No campervans here either
