26 April 2016 – Col de Rates

It was unfortunate that after asking the group to do this walk I was unable to take part due to a back injury.  However Jan did join the walk.   Thanks to Wendy for the following photos.
They followed the route from Parcent and climbed the path which had been badly eroded by the Gota Fria in 2007.   This was the route we used to use until we started using the Baranco Negra.   That route has now been ruined by part of the path being closed by the owner of a finca at the top.  The bypass avoids the “hidden valley”, which was our favourite part of the walk.
Apparently Wendy took this one because she knows how much I admire the flowers!
Although it was good walking weather, it was too cold to have lunch at the usual site with the views over Parcent and the Jalon Valley.
