|Col du Bonhomme is one of the main passes of the Vosges Mountains. The eponymous village of Bonhomme, located 6 km below the Alsatian side was perhaps named in honor of its founder, the monk Déodat known for his kindness.|
Located at an altitude of 949 meters, the pass connects Lorraine Meurthe valley and the valley of the Alsatian Weiss - specifically a tributary, the Béhine - the national road 415. Saint-Die-des-Vosges and Colmar are respectively 26 and 32 kilometers on either side of the neck. The ridge road it crosses national from neck Louchbach (979 m) to the Col du Pré Raves (1005 m).
Easily accessible from both sides, the Col du Bonhomme was already crossing point of the Roman road linking Toul Breisach. The place - strategic - was regularly instead of fighting over the centuries.

nice landscape with good tonal quality.
Superbe paysage, même si la vue n'est pas spectaculaire, cela nous replonge dans l'ambiance des montagnes enneigées. Merci
