Forêts en août


The city is more or less surrounded by forests, one of which bears the town's name. The second photo shows a path into Fausses-Reposes forest. Both were taken in August. As you can imagine, these forests were once much larger and were perfect royal hunting grounds.

La ville est plus ou moins entourée de forêts, dont l'une porte son nom. La seconde photo présente un chemin dans la forêt de Fausses-Reposes. Comme vous pouvez l'imaginer, ces forêts qui furent bien plus vastes constituaient d'excellentes chasses royales.

We saw a little of the area's forests while stomping around Versailles. Extremely beautiful.

How wonderful that at least some of the forest remain.

Surrounded by a forest? Very interesting! Makes for great places to investigate.

The top one looks tropical with what appear to be big ferns. By contrast, we are surrounded by rivers and suburban sprawl.

nous retrouvons les memes forets de notre cote, car les rois (les comtes and co) aimaient bien venir chasser (et surtout fauter) sur Evry et Seinart. Une belle foret qui va te faire faire de belles photos d'automne, non ?

Nous avons même des sangliers qui fouissent dans la plaine verte à 100 mètres de notre maison. Que font les chasseurs ?

I like the idea of a city surrounded by a forest. I never thought of it: we have the sea, the hills and some trees, but certainly not a forest...

Very beautiful indeed. It is nice to live surrounded by trees. Healthy too. MB

If I was a hunter, I would prefer the Royal Hunting Grounds;a better class of game.

Beautiful! I would love to see another picture of this now that it's fall-- are the leaves changing color?

Must be nice to live in such a royal place. :)

A forest is a treasure these days.

I'd love to make a foray into this forêt.
