Photographer's Note

I have been one week in the Pyrenees. From my beloved village of Oô I have done different tours and trekking. Again I have been in Gavarnie.
It's the most incredible place you have ever seen. You cannot say you have been in the Pyrenees if you have not visited once Gavarnie, 'le Cirque' ' le Chaos' It's a big collapse, overwhelming. The mountains and the waterfalls and rivers. Two giants ... the water and the earth. The rocks who look like closed books, but you are able to see the pages ... Le Tour, La Casque, Marboré, Trois Pics Cascade, L'Épaule, Breche de Roland.
On the other side Spain, and the Ordesa Valley, Bujaruelo, Pineta, Monte Perdido.
You have two choices to get there from the village of Gavarnie; the tourist highway a smooth path with some easy climbing until you arrive to the Hotellerie du Cirque or a wonderful trekking to the Refuge d'Espugues until you reach the prairie called Pailla; the wild iris flowers are waiting for you ! It's a longer way, but you can have a look to the whole Cirque de Gavarnie including the Breche de Roland.
From L'Hotellerie you can just reach the 'Grande Cascade', 400 meters high. Impressive when you look up to the Marboré, 3248 meters.
It was quite difficult to take the photographs as the light was not the best. The sun was shining just on top of the mountain ! Next time I have to be there early in the morning !!
