Autumn along Flumen river

Flumen is a short river running through Haut Jura Natural Park just near Saint Claude.
I went there for the first time past week between two rainy days. The place was dark and wet, the waterfalls were impressives with really strong noise and spray.

Eventail waterfall on Hérisson river

Eventail waterfall is probably the most famous of all the Hérisson waterfalls for two reasons : It's the tallest fall and access is really easy (a few minutes walk on a good path).

A closer view of Saint Claude with its cathedral and some old houses.
The cathedral is more than 8 centuries old and has a very long name : Cathédrale Saint Pierre, Saint Paul et Saint André.
The Maison du Peuple that you can see in the foreground is also an old building used today as a cinema. You can read more (in french) about its history here.

Grand Saut waterfall on river Hérisson

Hérisson waterfalls is the name of a famous french waterfalls range in Jura department (see more here).
I returned there a few days ago for the first time since my first visit in 2011 and i was glad to find a decent water level in the river and a kind freshness in the valley.

Grand Saut is not the most well known of all the waterfalls on the river (probably because one has to leave the main path) but i find the place really beautiful.

Note :
All my images about these waterfalls are here.

Horse Tail waterall in Haut Jura Natural Park

Horse Tail waterall in Haut Jura Natural Park

 

Horse Tail waterfall, aka cascade de la Queue de Cheval is one of the highest in Haut Jura Natural Park and the image above only shows the lower part.
I went the for a first visit yesterday but i was a little disppointed because despite the big rains we had recently, water level was really low and the fall not impressive.
