This segment didn't take very long either... below St. Dalmas it would be a real trek to the next train stop and I wanted to "see what I could see" from Tende looking north...if there was snow, and if it looked like I could reasonably walk to the Italian border that way... on the way south I also passed through la Brigue which was supposed to have a very nice church, which was closed...
|Ok, well the answer is "yes" on snow, and "no" on walking to Italy, so I guess I will just have to settle for Tende being by northern most point... would have been easy during the summer.|
|On the way up and out of Tende||A few shingles, a little gardening...|
|Interesting how a city can always make itself the center of the universe if it wants to...||Up and out of la Brigue... notice the slate roofs again.|
|Looking back at La Brigue from the ruins of Ste-Anne||Looking down on St. Dalmas de Tende|
|I would really like to know what made this small town such hot stuff. They have this old, abandoned palatial train station... why? The current facilities are, ahem, much more modest.|
