Early fall is my favorite time of year in St Andre - after the busy summer, the locals are relaxed and happy. The days are still warm but it's clear that winter is just round the corner. The shepherds are bringing their sheep down from the peaks - I'm sure they are glad to be going home. The brown fields of summer have become green again and the trees are slowly changing color.
The hiking is wonderful at this time of year. I've been away a lot, so today was my first long hike of the fall. It was a lovely tour in the Coyer / Corradour, visiting one peak but, after a steep initial climb, mostly level. A little overcast at the start, but mostly sunny in the afternoon. A long day, and I got back to the car just before dark, tired but happy. A few pics.
