Photos Week 6 Ceillac to St Etienne de Tinée

In Ceillac our friend Josiane joined to walk for 10 days with us. The landscape became much more arid with dry heavily eroded river valleys, lots of scree walking and even dried-up lakes. We hugged the border with Italy, passing extensive Maginot line fortifications as well as earlier forts and barracks from the 18th and 19th centuries. On our rest day in Larche, a village totally rebuilt after its destruction by German forces in WW II, we climbed a nearby peak (Tête Dure). We left the Ubaye by the very steep Pas de Cavale and then entered the Tinée valley flowing directly in to the Mediterranean.
