Taking a Hike

We awoke yesterday morning and felt like a hike. With the Pyrénées reachable by car in under two hours, we embarked on an impromptu road trip to the mountains. It was a bonafide adventure: we knew the general direction of where we wanted to go, but not much else. 

We stopped for lunch in Lourdes and eventually found ourselves on a road that led us over the initial foothills of the Pyrénées. That is how we discovered Cauterets, a quaint ski town nestled picturesquely in the mountains.


A walking trail conveniently began at the edge of town.


After hiking for an hour or so, we made our way back to the centre ville for coffee. It was a mild winter day and perfect weather for people-watching from a cafe terrace. We plan to return for a ski one of these days.
