What is it ?

Give way to Ascenders !

This sign shows how you must give way to ascenders going up the Echelles (ladders) on the sentier Martel in the Gorge du Verdon, French Alpes-Maritimes.

Quecha base tent

Just waiting for showers to stop to get the tent dried off. Drove back yesterday from France. Avignon to Glasgow in 24hrs. this Base tent by Decathlon worked well for shade, living space and in a thunderstorm. The campsite above was the Municipal one in la Palud high up on the Verdon Gorge plateau.
