Excerpt: The Durance (Durenca in Occitan or Durenco in Mistralian) is a major river in south-eastern France. Its source is in the south-western Alps, in Montgenevre ski resort near Briancon and it flows south-west through the following departements and cities: The Durance's main tributaries are the Bleone and Verdon rivers. The Durance itself is a tributary of the Rhone River and flows into the Rhone near Avignon. The Durance is the second longest (after the Saone) of the tributaries of the Rhone and the third largest in terms of its flow (after the Saone and Isere). The Durance is documented in Ancient Greek as and in Latin as (1st century), (854, 1271) and (1127). The traditional forms are probably derivatives of *D rantia, based on the Celtic "dour" (water) and suffix "ant" (stream). The Latin form ("hard") changed into the Old French "dur." Similar names are found in the names of many rivers in the Western Alps: Dora in Italy, Dranse in Haute-Savoie, and the Drome in south-eastern France. All these rivers have their sources in mountains, and are fast-running. The Durance retains its name rather than either the Claree or Guisane, even though the latter two are longer than the Durance when they each merge. The Durance is better known than the other two rivers because the Durance valley is an old and important trade route, whereas the valleys of the Claree and Guisane are effectively dead ends. Confluence with the RhoneThe Durance is 305 kilometres (190 mi) long from its source at the foot of Sommet des Anges, at 2,390 metres (7,840 ft) high, above Montgenevre, to its confluence with the Rhone. However, a longer route is traced by the Claree-Durance system with a length of 325 kilometres (202 mi). Its descent is unusually rapid at 81 m/km (165 ft/mi) in its first 12 km (7.5 mi), then 15 m/km (30 ft/mi) to its confluence with the Gyronde, and then still nearly 8 m/km (16 ft/mi) to the confluence with the Ubaye. This descent stays relatively steep after this confluence, then
