Tough walking

GR10 Geoff & Sally on snowWe are now at refuge Des Bouillouses after 2 really tough days walking along the GR10.

The first day was only 6 miles but it was a constant climb,the actual height gain was 1367 m so not bad for a Norfolk girl

That night we stayed at Refuge Des Besines very remote and beautiful with a great evening meal which made up for the expensive price .

We had breakfast at 6.30 and was on our way by 7.30 as it promised to be another hot day.

The height gain today was only 602 m but it was a good 11 miles over very rocky paths, some still covered in snow.

The 2 hour climb up to Coll de coma d’Anyell was just awesome! Then it seemed a long way down till we eventually arrived at tonights refuge.

We had a long wait for the showers as a huge French walking group had just arrived but I passed the time with Mr Grey and my Kindle 🙂

Photos for day 1 can be found here and day 2 here.

Happy to say my achilles is behaving but as a precaution I am applying Voltarol gel morning and evening.

As I write a mountain storm is brewing.
