Voilà enfin révèlé les demoiselles coiffées de Remollon. Elles sont d'autant plus intéressante que celle de Théus parce qu'il faut moins marcher pour aller les admirer.
Cottius, on February 27, 2008, said:
Oui, il y en a moins que dans le Valloria, mais elles sont bien groupées et très belles!
Et le fait qu'elles soient bien accessibles ne gâche rien! ;-)
Mais il est clair que le site du Bal des Demoiselles Coiffées est plus impressionnant par sa taille et l'ensemble du travail d'érosion du torrent de Théus!

Wao! Very impressive & interesting place shot!!
Well done, my friend!!
Cottius, on April 8, 2010, said:
Thanks Axl★Bach. These geological formations (due to rain erosion during eons) are quite famous in the area. They are dubbed either "fairy chimneys" or "hatted ladies". A local legend tells that when crossing the area Hannibal's soldiers feared them as evil ghosts who would take them in hell during their sleep... So they passed away quickly! Believe that or not :)))!

Hi Cottius ,very interested rock formations and very nice place, is very similar to formations ion my country created by erosion of terrain and wind influence and they are called "Devils town".

Hi again Vladan. You are right! These formations are created by erosion, but mainly by rain in this country (we may have severe thunderstorms in summer). I lke your name for them! Quite evocative and with a flavour of surnatural influence ;)!. Greetings, Cottius

Hi Maciej dear friend. Welcome in my village! We call these formations "cheminées de fées" (fairy chimneys) or "demoiselles coiffées" (hatted demoiselles"...It is a popular attraction for tourists in the area! Best wishes, Cottius
Hi again Maciej dear friend. You are welcome! The show was terrific : parents playing theater and imitating well-known show stars during 3 hours. A lot of fun :)). The show was for supporting the school's side activities (ski, trips etc.). Best wishes, Cottius
