Carcassonne – Fifteen Photos From Walking Around The Neighborhood

Fifteen photos taken “just walking around the neighborhood” on the way up to the Cité Médiévale de Carcassonne after a light dusting of snow in Carcassonne.  This week has been the first snow Tracy and I have seen in our last two years in Carcassonne.
