Sisteron to Castellane

Today's ride left Sisteron and we got some excellent views of the Citadel and the city through the fog. We climbed for at least 3000' and passed through some small villages. The townspeople didn't seem surprised to see a couple of bicyclists riding through their hill side town.

The is a Roman inscription along the side of the road that describes the original use of the road and the town to which it led. We can't read historical Roman through.
Nice views of the landscape. The roads we were riding on were really peaceful and quiet. In places they were more narrow than most american driveways.

We got to the hotel too early for check in and had to wait at a pastry shop. :)
