Sunrise 6:24: Spectacular walk in the countryside

The Dawn Joggers headed out this morning on what was supposed to be a four-mile loop max. They both studied the Randonnee map at their departure point, which was just a short distance from the house where they are staying in Ameugny. Sitting on the house porch, they looked out across a valley to another ridge of hills - some planted with rapeseed - and the route appeared to take them down into the valley a bit before looping back through Taize. The route was newly marked, so how could they go wrong? Well they reached the other side of the valley and given that there was no sign of looping back, they retraced their route. They figured that they'd walked six miles, the longest distance the male DJ had traversed in 2 1/2 years, so a notable achievement. (Not to mention the fact that it was over uneven ground on up and down terrain.) All in all, a spectacular walk in the countryside on a very pretty spring day...
