Summer hiking in the Vercors has been unusually hot, more than 33°C for much of the day, even at 1500 metres altitude. Nonetheless we've see some great sights and a few animals, including a first sighting of Ermine, probably a juvenile male in his caramel coat, which will turn to white next winter. Fireworks for the 14th July, Villard-de-Lans isn't Marseille Vieux Port but it was a good show anyhow.
Interesting cheeses too, taking their names from local mountains like La Grande Moucherelle or villages like Sassenage. Available out of the area just as Bleu de Vercors. Nice also to meet up with Joël from Die and with Arno from Annecy.
