Picture of our day

Today we drove to France to do a little grocery shopping. The market in the nearest French town is open on Sunday until noon. The store was very busy. I guess a lot of other people had the same idea. (Hey Switzerland, open your doors on Sunday and people will come.)

Since we were over there we thought we would go see Le Saut du Doubs - a waterfall on the Doubs river. We didn't make it. We parked and then realized we didn't bring our shouldered baby carrier. We thought about just carrying Parker, but the walk was a little far and when hiking you need both hands free for balance. We'll just save this for another day. Here is a picture I pulled from the internet to show you what we didn't see. There are several waterfalls in our area. Next summer we will have to get serious about doing more hiking to see them. But for now we just headed home.

It was very foggy at the lower altitudes; like around our house and the waterfall. But up in the mountains it was very sunny. We noticed a lot of cars parked off the roads. We don't know why, but we assume the locals figure if it is foggy down low and no rain, then it will be sunny up high. The people seemed to be hiking - they had walking sticks, backpacks and the likes. We stopped at a lookout and took 'our picture of the day' above. Our house is down in the fog somewhere.
