This is the fourth edition of the canyon descent fathers and mothers christmas held in Touet Var on Saturday 13th December. Like last year I was a partner of the event organized by the club canyoxygène, officiating this time to the discovery of the activity for the villagers.
The demand was raised last year in order to discover the activity to a wider audience. I offered to make a free introductory open for over 8 years and taking place dry. Finally, “dry” is easily said, especially when heavy rains this fall have much water the canyon. It was necessary to stick to the criteria to avoid the inhabitants to get wet, leave alone wildlife and stay in the rules. So I installed a course on the shores of canyons passing under the church and ending with a great reminder guided 70 meters above the last cascade of 35 meters and reaching the bridge in the village.
I was able to discover the activity to sixteen lucky. A first group of children followed by a group of young teenagers were able to discover their country from a new point of view: the air above the iconic waterfall. We will not have been able to get all the volunteers but because the experience is caused to renew, they will have the opportunity to try a new route even sweeter !!
Again thank you to the various partners: Hall Touet on Var and his council dynamics, Canyoxygène association with David Babin, different photographers (Huguette Remy, Jeremy Martin, Jean-Yves Gauthier, Patrice Cordier and Muriel Garente) and help Mickael Babin and my buddy Jeremy Martin.
