George’s Postcard Note: We’d seen “Vizitez les Gorges de Fou” along the highway, but hadn’t checked it out. Then our friends Suzanne and Dennis said it really was worth the mile hike — and we needed the exercise. Suzanne took us and it was indeed worth doing. A fairly new steel walkway attached to the canyon wall borders the roaring, bounding stream up about a mile toward a plateau. A bit scary, chilly cool damp, and then as we reached the top, warm air where drought-tolerant Mediterranean plants replaced damp-loving ferns.
