Having hiked eastwards to Refuge des Besines the previousafternoon, today we were heading west to complete a high altitude loop that would take in the Vallee du Siscar, just beneath the ridge marking the Andorran border, before climbing north to 2440m and descending into the Val d'Arques to join a variant of the Haute Route Pyrenees Trail that would lead back to the motorhome. It was a daunting prospect beneath overcast skies with low hanging clouds blowing through the valleys, but too good an opportunity to miss.
