I watched a programme on the Yesterday TV Channel entitled Abandoned Engineering, and this episode was about roads. The Grands Goulet road caught my eye… I’m pretty sure I drove on it many years ago, before it was closed forever. Alas, no surviving images, but the reason being it is a very narrow road, high up in the mountains, socking great drops……
Anyways, in that general region, we drove the Col de Rousset in the Vercors, and then went up to Combe Laval. No images from the latter for the same reasons as Grands Goulet, but I have a few from Col de Rousset….stunning views.
First, let’s start at Pont en Royans, a rather photogenic place:
Next, we’ve driven into the mountains and now we’re sitting parked at Col de Rousset, and in a moment we’ll see the stunning views. But first, take note of those rocks high up above us…as I recall, that’s where Combe Laval takes you.
Is this view not stunning? It was a fab drive up that road with all those lovely hairpin bends!
…and here it is, a bit closer:
Well, that’s been a fun trip down memory lane, all the better because I managed to track these images down and scan them in.
