France, Loire Valley - Château de Chaumont-sur-Loire VIII (The Valley of the Mists)

The Valley of the Mists (Le Vallon des Brumes) offers a special landscape, 
with luxuriant and humid vegetation that one discovers crossing a small wood bridge and descending a narrow path, 
such as Indiana Jones. 

This is a small ravine with steep slippery steps to the bottom, where mist is blown in clouds every minute or so. 
The sprinklers release misty water for a few seconds, then the light plays between the suspended droplets and the lush foliage.

The Valley of the Mists is an amazing sensory experience, where one can walk down into a mysterious mist filled valley, 
with the very fine mist being pulverized into air, steam jets constantly raising a foggy cloud, 
ferns and rays of sunlight piercing the thick mist create a particularly refreshing and unique decor.
