Our intrepid arch hunter Guilain Debossens reports the 900th arch that he has documented in France: Barri Troué.
This natural arch is located on the lower section of the canyon of Rimouren near the village of Saint-Montant in the Ardèche department of France. The opening has a measured span of 18 feet. Barri is an old Provençal name for a rocky ledge. Barri Troué is named (but not precisely located) on the IGN topographic map Top 25 number 2939 West Gorges de l’Ardèche (pleat B9).
Below are three photos of Barri Troué. About 95% of the arches Guilain has documented in France are on his website.
