Breezy let me choose the walk for the day so we set our alarm early and got a packed lunch sorted and headed for Port D’Aula. Having done some exploring of the frontier to the West of Port de Salau last year, I wanted to walk the ridge from Port D’Aula towards Port de Salau.
We parked at Col de Pause and trundled up the hill to the Port then turned left and headed towards Port de Salau.
Absolutely stunning views and hot weather.
Rather than complete the section to Port de Salau we dropped off the ridge before Pic de Montaude at Col d’Aurenera and traversed back to the van at Col de Pause. A great walk, and a definite one for the more adventurous visitors when we can walk back to the barn and retrieve a vehicle later.
Shower and BBQ on the terrace.
