GR11 Day 48-50- SHEEP and Weight Loss


Days 48-50 of my big hike across the Pyrenees Mountains!

I started day 48 by Rio de Canal Roya, walked to Candanchú (a ski town with only 1 very expensive small shop in summer), then I walked up a bunch of ski slopes to what I thought would be a lake - Ibon de Tortiellas (this was a side trek off the GR11 to find good camping). It turned out that this “lake” was dry, but there was a nice stream and small waterfall on the far side of it. It was so nice that I decided to have an extra rest day there. But then… I was invaded by thousands of sheep!

On day 50 I explained my thru-hiking weight loss problem and headed back onto the GR11.

This video was so funny. You barking at the sheep is so hilarious!

I feel like watching a pioneer from the Fediverse doing the exact same route as Asterix and Obelix did centuries ago 😛
