Follow the pink trail and prepare for something special in Provence. You won't find any elevations, limestone rocks or garrigues here. What you get is a walk in the stream bed of the Durance, the hot-headed river whose bed changes with the seasons on pebbles that are over 100 million years old. First you cross the agricultural plain sculpted by man. Fauna reigns supreme as you get closer to the Durance. You may well spot a kingfisher, black stork, bee-eater or Egyptian vulture. The flora is just as specific with its reed bed, sea-buckthorn, willows and poplars. You may even see some evening primrose, a small yellow flower crowning a long stem.
