Pic de Leviste

The weather forecast tells – rain, partly cloudy. We secure us with raincoats and everything. The track starts near the ski station Hautacam. The last kilometers to the parking car we drive in a fog on a bumpy road through puddles. We have alternatives here – to select (on a last stage of the track) one of the three summits. Shortly after we have started to walk it starts to rain and this continues all the way. The last stage before the summit is a steep, wet and muddy path. The magnificent nature and a pair of beautiful lakes uplifts us though.

The sights on the summit are perfect – on us I mean because there are no other ones. We find out the name of the summit (Pic de Leviste – 2463m high)  only when back home 🙂 After taking some shots we slither back down.

The last two challenges for today – how to get out of the wet raincoats and boots and to get in a car without get drenched completely. And how to find a place in our apartment for all those wet things.

We have walked 14km, height difference – 900m. To get back to senses we open up the second wine barrel 🙂

To the start
Next day
