Day 174. Herbilicious; Trip to Rufuge d'Asinao (1530m)
Stage 13, 8hrs, 14.5kms

Day of sun, day of wind, day of snow......what would this day bring. Well a donqtion of free bread from a French,an at the Refuge :)

A tightrope walk through tiny ascents/decents on a steep ridge at ~1800m for 1.5hrs. Through a beech fairytail forest to a river and spring. In a sheltered section we found for lunch Claudia came across Corsician Thyme which I bagged for flavour later. Now for
a hard incline to mount Incudine (2134m) the highest point in the southern part of the GR20. Enjoy it as it was a damn steep and dangerous descent to Rufuge d'Asinao.

No heating in this small old refuge and joined by another group heading north made it an intimate atmosphere. My Corsician Lonely Planet book was getting some attention, I was glad to have something of use! Sleep would have been nice and it started of so well. Claudia gave me a hot water bottle for the cold night ahead. But after 4 hrs it was cold and all I could hear was the Italian whale next to me snoring. I got up at 5ish with 4 others also apparently struggling with sleep.
