THOUSAND PONDS

When Denis and Jean-Baptiste, our « terrifortains » friends, organized this outing, they could not imagine for a moment that in early May we had to take out the Vettes under early morning snow. Fortunately the roads were clear ! without that we would have had a serious problem. Resulting from the melting of the glaciers 12,000 years ago, the area of 1000 ponds allows nice cruising, visits and tastings of good local products. At the end of the day, the group gathered in front of the « Lion de Belfort » sculpted by Auguste Bartholdi in 1879.
