Photographer's Note

Back from my journey in High Pyrénées ! My first photo shows you the wonderful Estaing lake in Azun valley south west of Argelès-Gazost. This lake has a surface of 8.6 hectares, is 6 meters depth and sits at 1,163 meters height. The lake is easily accessible by car. You can walk around the whole lake. It is also the start point for walks to Cauterets valley via Ilhéou pass on GR10 way or to Langle and Plaa de Prat lakes following Labat de Bun river. The summits around the lake are about 2,500 meters height. There was a lot of snow this winter in Pyrénées and there was even snow a few days become I arrived in Pyrénées, so the mountains were still snowy. You could still see remaining snow and tracks of avalanches on the borders of lake !
