August 2001, a couple of days in the Vosges and Alsace regions.

First some pictures of  Vosgien and Alsacian buildings. These pictures have been taken in Colmar , Kaysersberg , Ribeauville , and Strasbourg .

We also visited la montagne des singes , near the castle of Haut-Koeningsbourg:

The voies vertes (old railway tracks converted to bicycle lanes) are really nice for some biking or rollerblading. A change from the crowded parisian roads!

One of the many places where dead trees are kept wet (many of them didn't survive the storm of December 1999)

That's all! If you want to know more, just come over and visit by yourself; I hope you'll have the same nice weather we had!
