For Jo’s Monday walk today, let’s visit one of the chapels my s-i-l and I discovered and explored during my last visit.  This one stood atop a small hill right next to the road and after passing it a number of times, we pulled over on the way home and climbed the steep path with weeds on either side to be greeted by this view.

There were no doors, only the attractive, padlocked gates.

This part of France, the Franche-Comté,  is filled with out-of-the-way places that have the ability to surprise and amaze.  Following a road not taken or a sign formerly ignored may lead to nothing or to a jewel.  The latter is true of our trip following the sign and the gradually narrowing road to a small, well-kept chapel.  The “well-kept” part may be a bit surprising, considering the chapel is in the middle of nowhere, surrounded by forest with a stream running unseen but heard nearby.  Although the road appears to be someone’s drive, the green expanse in front of the chapel is mowed and the chapel clean, despite the smell of damp that lead us to keep the unlocked doors open during our visit to help it air out.
