The winter has been pretty long in St Andre, and although I've managed a few flights, I'm well behind on my 'normal flying hours' for this time of year. While tomorrow looks promising, today was too gray / humid / windy to attempt aviation. So I had yet another day of winter activities, a long snowshoe hike up the Pic de Chamatte.
It felt more like a hill-walking day in Scotland - completely overcast and windy. But cloud-base was about 100m above the summit - in Scotland it would have been in the clouds! Horribly sugary snow on the way up and even worse on the way down (though safe from an avalanche perspective). Hopefully, that's the last time I'll be using my snow-shoes this side of summer…
A few B&W pics.
