Forêt de Fontainebleau

We got off the train at the station in Fontainebleau, about an hour’s ride out of Paris. Right from the station we were able to enter the Forêt for an absolutely delightful hike up on the bluffs above the town (and the hugely ornate Château of the same name). I liked the way this tree arched out over the path, creating almost a theatrical proscenium above the convoluted rocks beneath. A popular hiking destination, the Forêt is also popular with rock climbers who have innumerable opportunities to climb the huge and almost animal-like boulders and outcroppings scattered throughout the 100 square mile parkland.
