Have I said I’m well chuffed with the new tyres? Sunday into Monday it rained all night, and heavily, I thought the new anti-skid mats were going to be put to use to get off the grass pitch, but no, the 4 season tyres coped admirably and have shown how sh1t the old ones were. Off we toddled from Les Vosges Mts to Besançon, €7 stopover in a fairly uninteresting city, but well served with trams and rain.
Then this morning motoring up through the Haute Jura mountains in cats and dogs weather I was even more pleased I’d bought them – almost sorry there’s no snow! So no, I haven’t moved the actual mountains, I’ve moved to a different range, and today passed the sources of a river or two, both well in spate from the overnight and continuing deluge.
Les Rousses, altitude 1107m, and tonight’s free stop, is so close to the Swiss border I’m not totally convinced I haven’t strayed over; Swiss chalet style houses, cows with bells on and cuckoo clocks for sale in the souvenir shops.
Les Rousses, small ski resort.
