We met Stuart two years ago at a wedding in Turkey and he thought he would like to do some walking in the Pyrenees and so came to stay with us last week with three friends.
First day was a local walk being as they hadn’t had any sleep the previous night due to an early flight.
Second day was a walk to the summit of Pic du Montaigu 2339m, we were lucky with the weather as there was a thunderstorm in the area and the cloud followed us up the mountain but didn’t affect us too much.
Day three we tried to walk up to Pic du Midi but heavy deposits of snow blocked our way and we were not equipped with snow shoes so had to turn back early,
A good time was had by all and I for one was surprised at how unfit I am (Mr PMT).
