Lunching (and drinking) on the summit of Pic l´Iou

Fantastic snow shoeing trip today with the Sabinanigo walking club to Pic l’Iou just over the border in France.

Hoy hemos hecho una excursion muy bonita con raquetas con el club de montaña Sabinanigo.

Beautiful weather again and being the first weekend the road from France has been open since the heavy snowfall a lot of folk were out snow shoeing and ski touring. A group of about 20 of us started from the border station and headed intitially towards Pic du Midi d’Ossau before skirting under Pic Peyregret and reaching the 2218m Pic l’Iou. As always with the walking club we had great fun with plenty of Spanish practise and of course the wine skin was passed around at lunchtime!

Y para nuestros amigos espanoles….  A la frontera hacia el sol y el cielo azul. Anduvimos hacia Pic Midi d’Ossau, y despues nos dirigimos a Pic l’Iou (2218m). El estado de la nieve estaba bien y fuimos rapido. Cuando subiamos hacia mucho calor. Cuando llegamos el pico tuvimos el almuerzo y tomamos un poco vino. Muchas gracias por un buen dia.
