La Chapelle Solférino

When I ventured out again a couple hours later, there was enough snow in our little street for a group of Basque holiday makers to snowboard right past our front door!

On days like this, when the cold mountain winds heap fresh blankets of deep snow down onto the valley, it makes me wonder what it would have been like to live in the valley in days gone by.

Before they built the gorge road alongside the gave, meaning that only access out of the valley was over the Col du Tourmalet...which is snowbound for months at a time...
