The Rhone River Valley : Seen from Fort l'Ecluse, FR
As mentioned yesterday, Fort l'Ecluse sits above the Rhone River and enjoys sweeping views of the river and the river valley. On a clear day, you can see Geneva and the French Alps. In this photo*, you can see all the way to Albertville, France, site of the 1992 Winter Olympics.
* I confess: I doctored up this picture a little bit. It was a lot hazier, so I adjusted the light levels a little bit. The result, I think, is something that looks like an old photo in an old issue of National Geographic.
