France, Parc de St. Cloud — Old Palace Grounds…
Posted on February 19, 2012
Back to the Parc de St. Cloud today, but it is colder, the air is clear and the sky is blue, creating a very different ambiance. There are no signs of the little red squirrels this time.
Took a different loop and came out of the woods onto an esplanade of fountains and giant urns, that had once belonged to the brother of the king of France. Runners were working on their endurance, sprinting up and down the steps connecting the terraced gardens. The formal design of this section of the parc contrasts starkly with the more natural wooded areas surrounding it, and yet it combines to make a beautiful and varied setting for a long ambling winter walk.
