When waking up in the morning I see stars through the window – means today will be a sunny weather.
We drive to parking place Artigues – here starts several tracks, to Montcalm in particular. Our destination is lake Montestaure. We start to go by the steep forest path. It is cold because we are in the shadow of the hill – dew drops in the grass are frozen.
Out of the forest we cross the bridge and enter the next valley and ascend further up to the lake. We proceed further to the Montestaure pass, but did not manage to reach it. The path is not clearly visible, we try to get higher by the hillside full of rolling stones but fail and have to go back.
