You’re introducing me to another part of the Ariège that I simply don’t know. Wonderful!
We’re a bit biased because this is where my wife’s family is from and we have a house there and obviously this is our favourite part. This is bear and mountain country. Bentaillou is a former zinc and lead mine 6,500 ft above sea level. It takes a 3 hour-walk from the valley. In fact nobody goes there, as you have noticed, nobody knows where the Ariege is.
what a beautiful place, ideal for hiking!
It is indeed. One can even mountain bike it all the way to the top.
Wow, makes it even more interesting!
“WOW” and “holy cow” come to mind in attempting to describe this place, but you’re right: No words. Gorgeous photo, though!
Thanks Heide. Sorry for missing your comment again. Hope all is well with you.
My life is a shambles, Yann — too much work, and too much change all at once! But I will get through it and will return to see what you’ve been up to the past month. Hope all is well with you, too …
