The Vosges mountain range lies conveniently between Alsace and Lorraine.
Now the french call it all (along with something else) the Grand Est.
From the ridge, the sunrise is still on the horizon behind Alsace
While the sunset is still happening behind the horizon towards Lorraine.
It is possible to experience these two things in reverse order.
With a short overnight stay in the open in shelters intended for that,
but walking in the Vosges at night – no – then enjoy the shelter.
(remember the coffee, there is no electricity)
As usual inspired by “Restlessjo” and her “Monday walk” themes.
Actually the views are best in daylight, but the sounds in the night are more exciting.
