Farewell Hike

Buckle up for another hiking trip, people!

This tour brought us all the way over to France, up to the peak of Mont Donon, the highest peak in the northern Vosges. Since it was a friend’s last month in Karlsruhe and he has never been to France before, of course, we couldn’t let him go without taking him there once.

While the hike itself was fairly short , it gave us plenty of time to take some breaks and have some extensive lunch on the way.

Up on the peak we were awaited by  the Temple du Donon, a reconstructed stone temple located at the highest point of the mountain from which you get a astonishing view over the surrounding countryside. And as a little bonus, some well-preserved Gallo-Roman remains can be found up there as well.
