Travel - TMB church 1This is Notre Dame de la Gorge Church and it is a lovely little village church completed in the 18th Century, but added on to and decorated into the 19th Century.  We enjoyed a little look around on this beautiful morning.

The steps leading to the choir loft are old and worn and worthy of a photo.  The interior is small and really quite lovely.

And lastly, below, is the gorge to which the name refers.  It is a magnificent water run cut into rock which crosses the trail a little farther from the church.

Really, a rather spectacular start to the hiking day!
