Lac d’Ilheou

It reins. And there is a snow up in the mountains. We leave Cauterets at 9am by foot and go to Lac d’Ilheou. We go up by the hillside through the woods then by the pasture. Then by the old road up to the lake. We are there just after the 12pm. Cold wind blows – we got wet and we freeze (me in particular because I wear shorts) thus we go back down. The sun shows up occasionally but mostly it rains. Still the snow is all around.

We had the lesson that our clothes are not warm enough for the sudden winter (the locals tell that it snows rarelly in September in Pyrenees – but this does not make the weather warmer. We hurry to buy warmer clothes.

Cider in the evening, as usual.
