A full day walk on the crest


We had some very hot weather recently and decided to try out some walks at higher altitude. This one took us from the apple orchards and streams around Paiharès up to the Col du Buisson and along the spectacular ridge track, with views of all the volcanic peaks one way and the Alps to the other. This is the area which was devastated by the fire of 2003 and it is interesting to see how the vegetation is recovering. Forests of foxgloves! Although it is sad to see the skeletons of some of the burned out trees, the disaster has certainly opened up the view.
