La Rivière du Rhône and Montagne de Vuache

The weather was beautiful on Wednesday when Garrin and I headed on our first brother-sister hike in France. We started out at Fort de l’Écluse, a fortress built on the Rhône River in the 17th century. From there, the trail we were on followed the Rhône River before leading us through fields, vineyards and woods up Vuache Mountain (1,105m). We enjoyed our lunch sitting on a limestone cliff with a view Lake Geneva flanked by the Jura Mountains to the west and Salève Mountain to the east. It was another great spot to explore in proximity to Geneva. This trip also marked the inaugural drive of Garrin’s car since its long winter hibernation. Although the real licence plates are still to come, the car can now legally be driven in France and we can head to the Alps!
