In July last year, I spent an amazing day in the Pyrenees Mountains that run along the boarder of France and Spain. My husband and I took the Petit train d’Artouste, a narrow gage tourist railway that leaves from the Artouste-Fabrèges ski area. The train travels 10 km along the mountains high above the valley of the Gave de Soussouéou, until it reaches the dam of the Lac d’Artouste. Along the way, passengers can see marmots, sheep and wild-flowers as well as breath-taking views of the Pyrenees mountains and valleys.
