The Pyrenees Mountains in July Photo Gallery

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.

      Thank you Frida! The marmots were adorable. I wanted to take one home with me but I don’t think my cats would approve 🙂

    Ok I’m jealous! Fantastic views, fabulous photos… I might just have to have a little day dream of doing this trip myself 😉
