We set off early morning to try and avoid the heat, but as we chose one of the hottest days of the year so far, it was a lot harder than the 10km actually travelled.

Walk: Col de Montclard – Trabesson – Armand – Col de Montclard

20140411-112405

A beautiful morning walk from the nearby Col at 850 metres up to Trabesson at 1053 metres. We came upon a deer in a field on the way up, but it kicked and sped away as soon as it heard us. Last time we did this walk the trees (almond??) around Armand were in full blossom, only budding today. Both the Mont Dore and the Puy Mary were clearly visible topped with snow.

When we returned to the Col we met another walker who was walking through every local commune a total of over 1000 km!
