2 April 2015 Walk from Camp Rouch, between Soubes and le Caylar

Starting from Camp Rouch, our group of around ten people. followed an easy path, slightly ascending. For the first half hour we wandered through open fields and it was really cold. The temperature was 4 degrees Celsius, but it felt even colder because it was windy and the sun was hidden behind heavy clouds. After a while we came to a path shaded by trees, so we had less wind, and that was a lot more comfortable.

Walking in the open field: bbbrrrrrr.

We carried on slowly upwards and waited a while until the group was complete again. The doggies got some water.

When we arrived at the top of the hill we saw the ruined Chapelle St.Vincent with  an old cisterne at the back.

From the summit there was a beautiful 360° view, especially over the valley of Pégairolles de l’Escalette and far behind it. We were even able to see the Lac de Salagou in the far distance.

Around this time the sun started to shine, which made it a lot more comfortable. From the summit we descended again. We saw some early wild flowers, which are beautiful. Sorry, I do not know the name of the flowers.

Small, but lovely little flowers.

The way back was sunny and an easy descent. Around 13:00 hours we were back at the cars.
