This month’s featured photograph takes us to the Dordogne region of southwestern France, home to exploration and settlement since the days of the Neanderthals. Today the scenic landscape still harbors hundreds of caves containing prehistoric creations, as well as remnants of more recent history. This panorona of the cultivated plains of the Dordogne River Valley and the 13th-century Château de Beynac, was created during an October seven-day walking vacation with The Wayfarers.
