Cathedral Notre Dame de Paris after the fire, France

We were horrified to see the tragic fire on television right before our trip to Paris. Notre Dame is usually one of our first stops when we land and this time it was not to be. The venerable Cathedral was fenced off and guarded by police at every turn. Of course all Parisians and every tourist in town wanted to see it so all streets leading to it were very crowded and pictures extremely difficult to take. Distant photos were the norm and this was our first view after landing. It actually looks quite good from here but we walked around the entire block and from the back you can see much of the damage. So sad . . .
