Time for new depressing landscapes as brisavoine states. Pics were taken on the 22nd of December 2007. Let's begin with the "Black" tour.

The village of Monassut : we now enter Vic-Bilh and its hills.


Abandoned farms constitute the main landscape ...


Vic-Bilh is made of large valleys (called arribèras in Gascon) with the Pyrenees in the background :


Simacourbe :


New houses imitate vernacular architecture :


Escurès (from Basque eskurr- meaning oak):








Séméacq-Blachon :




The Castle of Blachon (a Gascon form for Iberian Blasco) with its pigeon house (too heavily restaured, I miss its former decay) :


Séméacq (meaning : Semen's property):




Moncaup (meaning : Bald Mount):


Pediment craze :












Always the mountains of Bigorre :




We leave Béarn and we now enter Rivière-Basse (Hautes-Pyrénées) with a large agricultural valley :


The border :


Backlighting prevents us from admiring a splendid view on the mountains :


Lascazères (notice the subtle change in the architecture):














Madiran deserves a thread of its own : just a glimpse.


Coming back in Béarn with some houses in Crouseilles (we'll see more of Crouseilles in the "Red" tour) :




The Larcis valley :








Next : end of the "Black" tour and the shorter "Red" tour.
