RoussillonOctober 17, 2018 in France ⋅ ☀️ 19 °C
A few days ago we went to the town Roussillon, in Provence, and saw lots and lots of ochre rock formations and buildings. Ochre is a kind of clay, but when we saw it, it was bright orange, and dark red! All the buildings in Roussillon were obviously built out of mostly ochre, cause they were orange too! Something I noticed about the ochre sand was that it was super soft, and that it made your hands all orange! In Roussillon we went on a small hike called ‘Le sentier des ochres’ where we saw lots more ochre rock formations. After the hike, we were going to get ice cream, but all the ice cream stores there were closed, so we went to two other towns, and got the same result. We ended up going for ice cream the next day, in Arles, and we got to the store the day before they closed for the year, so they were almost all out of everything!
