Starting in La Combe bei Lioux, Provence, walking up the hill, through shrubs and wild herbs towards the farm "Bezaure", made a side-trip to the ruins of "Le Castellas", great views, then down into the canyon "La Grande Combe de Lioux", back through the green bottom of the canyon to La Combe (ca 4h, some ups and downs, easy but rocky).

Allschwil -> Neuweilerstr.

This was a random short walk for a sunny Sunday afternoon.

We started from the tram stop in Allschwil, continued to Schoenenbuch, crossed the Geiser to Ziegelhof, then passed the Herzogenmatt to end up at the Neuweilerstrasse tram station.

Nothing particularly fancy here, just a stroll through some fields. Still, very nice.
