Proposition transectale de Digne à Auzet & vice-versa

The French artist Paul-Armand Gette proposes an excursion for visitors in the Bès Valley, along a transect*[1] from Digne to Auzet on which nine stations have been chosen, landscape observation points marked by a 0m. [0 metres] panel that marks the beginning. A book is provided for this trail, with texts written by the artist presenting a poetic view of the places in the Bès Valley, stressing that scientists are no less poets than artists.
