Day1 GR10. Luz St Sauveur to Barèges
21 Aug 2017
Set off on time and followed the planned trail. Unfortunately it was closed at the edge of the forest with a sign saying to take an alternative route from the centre of Luz St Sauveur. So around we turned and started again. Double checked with tourist office and set off again having lost an hour! Luckily our GPS allowed us the follow the new route. Only took another couple of wrong turns but corrected them quite quickly.
Stopped at a lovely mountain cafe for an icecream and fresh lemon drink.
Picnic lunch further on
