Plateau de Lehrs – Lac Gentau
Distance: 27km (small but steep day!)
Elevation: 2288m (yikes! That’s like climbing Mt Kosci in one hit!)
Gear fails: Mat’s water bladder leaked for the third time. For the third time, it was because he hadn’t closed it properly 😉
Fuel: Peanut butter on baguette (that’s the end of the peanut butter, and they don’t seem to sell it anywhere here. So, our choice is now between jam or Nutella…which should we buy??), 2 x apples, 2 x cafe au lait, peanuts, mars bar, SOS citron (it was a hot day!).
We didn’t plan to camp next to the lake, but we couldn’t resist. Mat looked at me with those “please can we” eyes and I buckled. Even though it means we’d have a mammoth day tomorrow. But I mean, just look….
We’re camping next to Lac Gentau at 1960m. The air is cold for the first time since we left Australia, and we both have long sleeves on (imagine!). I’m not going to describe the hike up here (and it was a hike – no running today!), as nothing I say can do it justice. Instead, here’s a picture story:
