Vineyards on the border
grapevine we passed by were not yet in full gloom, well, not even in partial gloom, I would say - they were just waking up from winter. I guess these hills must look spectacular in summer, we will definitely visit the place again when they start to flourish.
From Dardagny we followed the trail back to Challex. It was even more spectacular and, as the sun went higher, hotter than our first part of the trip. First we passed by the village, watching the wine-vaults, stopping by a chateau and admiring the flowery mansions scattered all over the place. Then we turned right, off the beaten track, through yellow fields and vineyards again. When we reached Challex I was already pretty tired, not used to the sun and a bit rusty in joints after winter, so we went back to Saint Genis for lunch.
