Excursion 10

27, 28 and 29 August 1999

Dear colleagues,

Dear friends, Longtime ago and also recently a few among you have suggested to have a longer-than-one-day trip. Here is it!. I mentioned the trip I am proposing among the attenders to the excursions this year so that I now who is going to come. Reservations have been made in the montain huts of Pierre a Berard (1st day) and Moede-Anterne (2nd day). The goal is, of course arrive to Le Buet, but also to visit paysages that in one-day-trip would be inaccesible. I hope that wheather will play in our favour. Here is my proposal for this three-days-long-trip:

In the web address "http://excursiones.salicio.net" you can find the maps for this trip. This time more than ever

It is convenient to emphasize some useful items: please do not forget to carry on (wear) raincoat, hat/cap and sun glasses, warm gloves, hiking boots or sport-footwear with thick and non-slipping sole, enough food and drinks for the own consumption. Spear dry clothes and after excursion confortable shoes are very convenient.

I hope weather conditions will allow an enjoyable excursion! Cheers! Jose.
