La Sainte Victoire

Having lived in Aix for nine months now, an outing to the Saint Victoire, the acclaimed mountain featured in many of the artist Paul Cézanne paintings was long over due.  The skies came through allowing us to scale the rocky slopes with ease. Although, the descent proved to be slightly trickier than the way up.  Stopping along the way to catch our breath, you can’t help but notice the thyme which grows uncontrollably and just happens to perfume the trail as you walk along.  The views of Provence were breathtaking from the summit. I love the vineyards that speckle the country side as well as all the wild flowers. So whimsical.
