Out in the snow

Snow at last

Red sky in the morning warned us that the snow was finally on it's way.

A couple of days of snow and we have 30cm after some compaction over night. A few days of calm before more arrives next week.

Peyre de Mesongère

A short walk with Sophie, Sheri, Michiel and Susie to Peyre de Mesongère from Ustou on GR10. A fairly short and steep approach to the col through beech woods then a climb to the bald summit with its emergency telephone mast.

 Sheri, Sophie and Michiel obviously didn't think much of their lunch : (

 A pair of parapentists took off from the summit shortly after lunch.

After a couple of weeks of cold nights and sunny days, snow is forecast from Wednesday.
