After a few wrong turns, and a steep narrow climb up countless switchbacks, we arrived at our starting point for todays hike near Les Frachets. There isn't too much to see as we get started, but soon the clouds disperse and we are happy for our late start so that we will enjoy the better part of the day.
The beginning section of trail is busy with hiking families, but we soon begin a steep ascent, and find ourselves alone for the next few hours, besides a few friendly bouquetin (ibex).
Hmmmm...the trail's been buried under a rock slide. Not my favorite thing to cross.
We stopped for a dinner break on our way back down, and enjoyed a few evening hours in the valley of Jallouvre.
Loving these tight hairpins on the drive into the sunset.
