our first since the Pyrenean Way in 2013. Setting off into bright sunshine from our motorhome base at Ceillac to tackle the steep 1000m climb to the Col de Estronques (2651m) feeling a mixture of excitement and anticipation of what was to come as views of the Queyras along with the Ecrins to the north and some Italian peaks to the east came into view.
And that is precisely what happened. Not an hour seemed to go by without one or both of us having to dash out of the tent with our toilet paper and shovel in hand. It was not a good night (at least we can laugh about it now).
