To reach Lyons from Nice, it is necessary to cross spurs of the Alpes. The local province refers - Rhone-Alpes.
Though mountains are also low, but the road passes through picturesque gorges so the river running below left sometimes on tens meters in a precipice. We were told, that Napoleon lead in due time the army on this road, having caused a panic at Italians and Austrians who thought, that the army would go seacoast. However the march-throw on the shortest way through mountains brought military success to Napoleon.
We were already a little tired of mountain road when we have been arranged a green parking near a picturesque lake. Surrounded by green mountains, the lake had a very cut up and steep coast. I have taken advantage of the moment, and have quickly left from our group in a deserted place. Here I dived into the water. In spite of the fact that it was a mountain lake, water was warm enough.
I have already a little weaned from bathing in fresh water, but felt huge pleasure. It was a pity to look at the fellow travellers who the walked at the bus the whole hour, and did not test a charm of freshening bathing.
You can watch my 3 min 08 sec Video Nice-Lion across the Alps out of my Youtube channel.
