France day 6

After the photo mishap this morning we didn't have much time to drive far. We decided to go back near the Spanish border to check out some Cathar castles. Catharism is a Christian sect that flourished in the 12th and 13th centuries in southern France. Below is their Peyrepertuse castle--you can see on the right of this picture the road leading up to the parking lot. We had a very slippery hike up to the top. Imagine natural marble stones that are wet from the dropping rain...yes, I did fall one time and it hurt! This picture does not do the view justice. The view was amazing and I will post more when I do a detailed review of this day.
