2008 trip with Ellie


The August 2008 Pyrenean trip with Ellie focussed on 4 main areas:

1) We started at Torla with a 4-day clockwise hike along the GR11 to Panticosa, over the border to Pont d'Espagne in France, past the Vignemale to Gavarnie, then over the Breche Rolande, past the Refugio Goriz and down the full length of the Ordessa Canyon (again on the GR11).

2) The second area was Benasque in the rain, with one day trip out and back on the GR11 to some lakes.

3) The 3rd area was Espot, further east with a few scenic day trips.

4) The final area was much further east, based near Figueras at a Casa Rural, not far from the Mediterranean Coast. The hills here are heavily wooded with long approaches up dirt tracks.
