Cirque de Gavarnie Post
High in the Pyrenees today, we hiked from a small village up to a beautiful bowl formed by the peaks. Many waterfalls feed by melting snow poured down the cliffs to gather into a clear, fresh, cold river. We hiked to the base of the largest waterfall where the torrent created a cloud of spray and a powerful windstorm that drenched anyone to close. If was another gorgeous day and the start was a nice way to chill off halfway through. After hiking back down, we watched a professional bicycle race along the winding mountain road - complete with chase cars, motorcycles, cheering fans, and a helicopter overhead. To see where we hiked, Check out my current location on the map.
