Pictures list from April 19th, 2003

Vosges Range, to the East of the country near Strasbourg. We climbed by car to the highest summit (1400m; the average elevation of the surrounding valleys is only 5-600m) then descended on foot to a small village called Metzerel. Heavy fighting took place in these mountains during 1914-1918; we've also visited old trenches, fortifications and a monument to the French soldiers. Ioana was with us only while by car.
