Sharon on the Sentier Martel trail in early morning.
It starts by going down to near the bottom of the canyon
 

trail along the river Verdon
 

Sharon on a short side trip off the trail
 

glad to have some help for crossing a steep slope of loose stones
 

more help provided for going down a long steep "chimney" through the rock
 

looking ahead to the river below the cliffs
 

on a long gentle section of the trail
 

It gets tougher again as Sharon sees the canyon narrowing ahead
 

the river Verdon passes thru the narrow gaps which it cut thru the rock
 

two long tunnels were constructed thru the rock, to make it easier for hikers
to make it thru that narrow section -- Sharon is finding the light at the end
 

hole in the rock at Couloir Samson, almost to the end of the trail
 

Looking back south into the narrow gorge, from near our finish at Point Sublime.
Then we rode our bicycle back to Chalet de la Maline where we'd started hiking.
