A Wednesday walk in the last of the snow

In the snow

Some of the Thursday walkers had an extra treat – a great day out on Mont Aigoual with Julien from Escapeo, our friendly and knowledgeable guide. He showed us how to read animal footprints in the snow, and told us lots about the landscape and the history of the area.

In the morning we walked through the woods (not enough snow for snowshoeing) and picnicked in a ruined abbey.

In the afternoon we drove to the extremely windy summit of Mont Aigoual, with views in all directions.

We are all looking forward to another trip next year, when we hope there will be more snow!
