I’m a day behind on my posts so I’ll try and catch up. Here’s a group shot of the people I stayed with the night begore. The ladies were going to start later so Al and I pressef on together.
We got started late out of St.Jean. very step for the first 8 kilometers inbuilt we reached Orrison. After a brief stop we started towards the top.
The weather was pretty warm, in the mid to upper 90s and humid. It wasn’t as steep as before bit long. Finally we reached the statue of the Virgin, which symbolizes the top but isn’t.
We went on and one and after some rough up hill stretches finally started down. By that time both Al and I were pretty low on water and pretty warm as well.
We found the Fountain of Roland at the border with Spain. What a blessing to relax and drink our fill of the cool water.
We refilled and started down. Finally arriving at our Alburge at 6 PM.
Whata day. Nit as tough as the Grand Canyon, but tough that’s for sure.
A few more pics.
