... climbed to Trou de la Mouche (via Combe du Grand Cret) - 2467m above sea level. It was stunning! Absolutely spectacular! We hiked back to the van, this is without a doubt the best parking view we have yet!!! We treated ourselves to some local French cheese today, so cut that up with some baguette, got a cold beer and admired the vista. This is the good ...
... has there moment of not feeling good. It was my turn to suffer a little on the bike. I probably went a little too deep the day before when I attacked up the hill and didn't recover well that afternoon. I should have know better but it was fun attacking on the last climb.
