Forty-one years ago today on June 28, 1971, Jim Morrison, Pamela Courson, and their friend, Alain Ronay, took a day trip to Saint-Leu-d’Esserent, 55 km north of Paris, less than a week before Jim died on July 3.

Twenty years later, Alain Ronay published his story in the weekly French magazine, Paris Match. Included were two photos taken on June 28. These are the last known photos of Jim.
