I have not enjoyed the drives to the trail heads, up winding, narrow, mountain roads. The views I'm sure, have been wonderful, but I haven't been looking. I had to turn back with Finian on one hike, the trail was so narrow, with a huge drop off, and Fiacra and Ailbhe were skipping along so nonchalantly, I just couldn't watch them. I was also leaning away from the drop-off so didn't feel safe walking with Finian.
Fiacra is well prepared with a walky-talky and a headlamp

We have had a wonderful week, helped by amazing weather. We are all sorry to be leaving tomorrow. As we were driving to a hike today, Fiacra said "the Pyrenees are so much fun, I can't BEAR to leave". Fiacra and Ailbhe are already looking forward to coming back with their friends in July. I am already thinking ahead to a hiking trip to the Rockies.
