The wonderful Pyrenees in early summer (Day 3 17/06/14) - the evening

WE quickly visited Gavarie, but were not very impressed by the village.  In order to hunt for birds of prey though we drove up a local road going west, although it turned out that this was cut off due to a landslide.  The road runs along the foot of a huge cliff where the birds can often be seen soaring on the thermals.

The flora on the steep hillside was interesting and the plants on the cliff were typical of high altitude species.

Looking across the deep river gorge a tame marmot stared back at us.
