The Pyrenees at their best
Just south of the winter resort city of Bagnères-de-Luchon is the mountain range separating France from Spain
. The ascent from the city is deceptively rapid and we found ourselves carefully turning the car around as the roadway became a sheet of ice. There were also signs warning of avalanches, too. The french olympic ski team trains here, rather than the Alps, because it is steeper here.
