Leaving Florac over the old bridge

Looking back at the Causses




Looking back towards Florac






The old railway station at St Julien d'Arpaon

At last.... a chance of a cup of coffee at La Cabana de Charo

Now for the easy bit..... walking along the old railway line

The old railway line runs along buttressed embankments
high above the river gorge.

There are 3 short tunnels along this stretch of railway line




Crossing the main road at Le Pont des Crozes





Catching up with Marco and Sylvia again

Soon after meeting Marco and Sylvia I had to peel off to the right on a route that led to Le Cauvel, where I was staying. Marco and Sylvia went on to St Germaine de Calberte

The route went along a very narrow trail that did not look as though it
was used much, and eventually came out on the D13. Here it was a sharp left
along the D13 to Le Cauvel


Is this really the way to Le Cauvel, I was beginning to wonder!

Pretty remote and rugged countryside


At last Le Cauvel. I was quite relieved to have found it!

The Chateau du Cauvel comes into sight
