Vive la Difference!

The steady eight hour drive from the Blanca wasn't quite the chore we had feared, with clear roads and good weather. The Pyrenees were snowy and impressive, and by the time we arrived at Ariege the temperature had dropped to 7 degrees and there was drizzle in the air - we were in a new and different place! Despite the forecast it dawned bright and clear with a good covering of snow on the tops. We headed into the hills and abandoned the car at the end of the cleared road, a steady hour and half plug through the snow led us to a couple of cabins in the woods.
We saw several skiers, a few snow-shoers, and most bizarrely a guy on a dog sled being pulled by six huskies - weird!
