The forecast yesterday was for bright blue skies but, unusually, it was slightly wrong. Although there was some blue sky and sunshine, low cloud hung over most of the mountains tops in our valley. However, my chosen destination of the Becs de Bosson, (at over 3,100m or 10,100ft) looked clearer than most.
During my approach to the Pas de Lona, things didn’t look good but, ever the optimist, I pressed on hoping the clouds would lift and, luckily, this time they did. 🙂
On the way various animals had left some ‘nutrients’ for the butterflies to enjoy. And, let’s face it, there’s nothing better than a pile of dung to distract a butterfly from the close attentions of a man with a camera. 🙂
My apologies for posting so many images, but this is just the tip of the iceberg… The walk, which was 23k (14 miles) long and climbed over 1,900m (6,200 ft), took me around 8 hours and so there were plenty of opportunties to stop (and catch my breath) and take some photos.
