This past weekend I decided to head to the Pyrenees to do a little hiking in the mountains. So I took a train early Friday morning to the little ski town of Ax-les-Thermes, got a map of the hiking trails in the area, and headed off into the mountains. ”Walking season” doesn’t start in the Pyrenees until June so most of the huts were still closed and I had to instead do day hikes and stay in the town. I soon found out why the summer is better than the spring for hiking as I found lots of snow not that far above town. The weather also turned out to be not the best hiking weather and I spent a lot of the time especially in the higher elevations in a snowy foggy cloud. So I can’t say I saw too many of the mountains but I know they are there as I hiked up some pretty steep trails! Here are a few of the pictures from the weekend.
