Plateau of Aiguallut to Hospital de Vielha
The morning was spent climbing up to Coll de Mulleres (2928 meters).
Then the long downhill started. And the weather started to change a bit.
Chantal and Paul have hiked the PCT and CDT and are blog followers of Wired. They live an hour from where we ended today. After they offered to host Wired she asked them if they wanted to also host us. They said yes. I can’t believe how lucky we are. The last 3 days have been the hardest 3 of the HRP. I need some rest! They met us with beer and sandwiches. As soon as we got in the car Paul said we needed to spend 3 nights (2 zeroes) with them. How could we argue? There is nothing like hikers hosting hikers. They know exactly what we want and need. It’s been interesting to talk trail with them. We have lots in common.
Yess!! Three days with Paul and Chantal. I know Wired let you know to be prepared to eat!
I noticed the stickers in their picture with Wired, and again with you.
yay two zeros to fatten up and rest!
This is the place to do it!
You are at the midway. Bravo !
Glad you made it down the Col the first 20 meters are a bit dicey . And it is a long long way down afterward. Enjoy !
All the downs have seemed longer than the ups.
Incredible views! Too bad you’re missing the Sacramento summer, tho.
I feel really bad about that. Ha.
The Central Valley is on fire with temps over a hundred. I’m with you Nancy.
I noticed the trail logo’s on your host’s vehicles too. You’ve been blessed with all the trail hospitality.
That sandwich looked good!
