New Angles

We have just driven to Les Angles, which is a ski station in the mountains. Never been there before but will go again, if only for the beautiful drive. It is only 75 kms but takes ages because it is all narrow gorges and twisty roads. Passes several hydro-electric plants and is at 1600 metres. Very nice up there. Cafes, restaurants, shops selling outdoor stuff, especially skiing of course, a big lake.

And it would also seem that the Tour de France passes through sometimes. The mountain stages frequently finish at a ski station because of the availability of accommodation.

The reason for our journey was to buy some running shoes. As the last post said, watch this space.
