A long weekend in the Vosges/Alsace

Strasbourg and Colmar (in the valley)




Pittoresque villages along the "route du vin" : Mittelbergheim , Riquewihr, ..






The Alsacian vineyards up the slopes




Up in the Vosges







On our return home, we drove through white landscapes in France, Germany and Belgium and we made another stop in Ovifat Belgium since we were early. One of the few (small) alpine ski hills in Belgium was open.

These are wonderful -- that picture of you all on the ski hill reminds me of a winter scene by Averkamp.

Pretty little villages. What is the river running through - the Rhone or the Rhine? (Forgive me, if I'm way off.)

@Poetikat: it's the river Ill which starts in the Jura mountains, runs parallell to the Rhine (which is in Germany) through the Alsace and then does end up in the Rhine.
