Carros de Foc - day 2

First day of the Carros de Foc circuit and a fairly tough one with 4 cols to cross. Spanish refuge breakfasts consist of a small cup of instant coffee and a selection of cakes, sweet biscuits, nutella, jam and if you're lucky some bread. Glad we brought some meusli to augment things! The weather was glorious with scenery to match. The first three cols were climbed in quick succession and by lunchtime we were at the Refugi Colomers. 

The water level behind the dam was shockingly low

Once we'd left the Refuge we had a stiff climb to the Coth deth Tuc Gran de Sendrosa which in the heat was quite exhausting particularly for Susie and Ruby. Fortunately it was mostly downhill to the Refugi Saboredo and a well earned beer and hot shower. The refuge has been recently enlarged and the top level of the dormitory has a magnificent picture window with views to the mountains. This was our favourite hut of the holiday.
