One wouldn't know there were mines, if you just happen to pass by.
....peter:): they are not showing very much from this angle Louis... but there should be signs of it up close... bauxite mining was done on the surface and not deep into the ground....petersmile
A good example of how nature grabs back an aera once man has finished with it.
....peter:): i agree Brian... nature likes to repair our mistakes....petersmile
I wonder if there are swimming places made.
....peter:): i don't think so Mary... the mining is done on the surface abs not deep into the ground....petersmile

hmm, there are Bauxite mines less than 10 miles from where i currently live

they are not under ground so rugged as yours. as a matter of fact, once in a great while, the earth opens up and swallows itself up, sometimes taking people with it.

you had a terrific vantage point
....peter:): i think that these were mined on the surface like cutting into a quarry Sherri... sorry about the people who got swalloed up....petersmile
It does look quite natural and most attractive
....peter:): nature is reclaiming the land nicely Martin....petersmile
Les Baux de Provence sont un lieu magnifique mais il ne faut pas y aller quand il fait très chaud car ces roches retiennent la chaleur et certains jours cela peut être insupportable. Très belle photo Peter, bisous à  vous 3
....peter:): Je suis d'accord sur la chaleur dans les villages à cause des rues étroites et des murs de pierre sombre Marie ... nous étions là en août et nous n'avions pas le choix ... nous n'avons pas pris le temps de nous déplacer autour du village... merci Marie! Bisous de nous 3
Looks like nature has won...
....peter:): Nature does a great job of reclaiming what we humans break up Larry....petersmile
