Hiking in Gavarnie, Pyrenees, France

Hiking in Gavarnie, Pyrenees, France. (The Caousillet Trail)  This walk is about 3 km one way starting from the village of Gavarnie along a stream, through an open field, tree shaded path, genltle gravel slope and finally reaching the snow covered foothill of a majestic mountain cliff. Beyond this peak and just 2 km is the border with more arid spanish range. In the summer, many hikers would criss-cross between France and Spain. Allow a leisurely one hour up and one hour back to the village. Try drinking from the clear water stream which is very refreshing. (pictures taken in April)
