Pyrenees near Chalabre and Mirepoix

View of Pyrenees near Chalabre and Mirepoix
Driving from across to Chalabre the landscapes changes to more flowing landscapes with fields of sunflowers, wheat, with grand distant views of the Pyrenees. Of course there are areas of large rounded hills with brush and forest - but the land is somewhat sweeter, more open, with villages that seem hidden - with towns like Mirepoix with its medieval center and Chalabre - a mill town in grand valleys with marvelous views.
