Autumn in Champagne

October 27, 2019 at 6:02 am Leave a comment

Champagne is beautiful at any time of year (well, there are periods that some people find rather bleak, but to me it is always beautiful).

But some parts of the year are more beautiful than others. Often as I am driving around this part of the world my breath is taken away by the beauty of the landscape. Most of the time I don’t get to take pictures of it, though, because a) I am driving; and b) it is hard to find safe places to pull the car aside on the rather narrow country roads with their also-narrow shoulders.

This week I was privileged to be able to visit friends who have recently moved to a town near Essoyes (Bar sur Aube), and to go with them for a drive into the hills outside of town to revel in the fall colors.

Here are just a few pictures to share with you some of that beauty.

I hope you are enjoying autumn wherever you are…more soon…
