Trekking through the high country of Navarre, the main Pyrenean massif is suddenly much closer.
Hi folks, just an update to say that our blog for week 2 is imminent…we have been out in the hills for days with no Wi-Fi! All is well, we are deep into the mountains now, the going is hard…so hard at times, but the beauty is worth every aching mile. We have traversed alpine water meadows and struggled over high passes with swifts whizzing past us in a sky of deepest blue.
We watched the dawn from our camp spot high in the mountains this morning, the sun rose behind the granite spires and sent great shafts of light across the valleys below. Chamois grazed above us and the vultures began to soar. Some great wildlife sightings to follow in the blog.
We have to get to the next town (Sallent de Gallengo) over a high pass by tomorrow as there is a thunderstorm pending (and they are mighty!). Adios for now, we’ll update very soon…with plenty of pics.
Rebecca and Barry
