I have just updated my trip report from our trek in the Pyrenees with newly processed photos. This was our final trek of our European travels this last summer, and thus the last new photos I have to post from Europe.

Our trek through the Pyrenees was cut short by an unfortunate injury, and so I hope to return someday to see many parts of the range that we missed. And concerning the Alps and Europe in general, there are so many mountains there to see I feel like we only scratched the surface during our two months of trekking there. We could spend many many summers there before really getting a solid grasp on that mighty mountain range, and hopefully we’ll get the chance to do so in the future.

  1. The trip report is compelling. Thanks. You and Claudia sound like a great team. What is better than enjoying the world with the person you love?

    I too love the Pyrenees. The high Alps are spectacular, but need a partner, rope and axe at a minimum. The Pyrenees are more amenable to wandering around. The character changes dramatically from the green French side to the dryer, redder Spanish side. Do consider crossing over from Gavarnie to Ordesa, a most impressive canyon and possibly going up Monte Perdido. Aigues Tortes are lower, but great peaks for meandering in.

    1. Hi Mark, thanks for your comments and suggestions! Had we been able to continue our trek as planned, we would have passed through Gavarnie in about 3-4 days further. That looks like an incredible cirque and I was excited to see it…. Well, now I have more reason to go back!
