Hello :)
Another great trip today across the mountains.
Here are 3 pics, sorry for the quality : I took them with my smartphone.
In the background, the summit with the dome-radar is the highest summit of the Vosges massif, at 1.424 m / 4.672 ft

So that's eight Scimitars in the mountains this week ... viewtopic.php?f=12&t=30136&start=15 :)

Super pics, and I'm not going to enlarge them enough to count the pixels.

:goodpost: Very much enjoyed !!! :goodpost:

Reminds me that, when I drove the Land Rover to Toulouse, we passed the Vosges - can't remember where exactly, though. Your pictures make me want to repeat... the day I will visit Germany with the Scimitar, I give you a call.

Cheers
Jörg
