After a clean-out-the-fridge lunch of cheese, fruit, bread, olives, sausage, and rose, we decided we had to get out of the house, so we drove east about a half hour to the village of Sixt Fer à Cheval which is dominated by the Cirque du Fer à Cheval, a horseshoe shaped outcropping of rock that is apparently just breathtaking. But we could only see maybe about 100 meters up, as the tops (ranging between 500 to 700 meters) were completely shrouded in fog. But it had its own beauty in the rain, along with the added benefit of being completely devoid of other tourists.
