Last month we spent another weekend in the Mercantour national Park (our June expedition is here), to enjoy autumn nature colors.
The border between Italia and France is crossing the Mercantour, we were only a few kilometers away.
The first day, we reached the mountain hut of Cougourde and we take our lunch near a stream.
“Edgar, Rebecca, the refuge is over there!”
Then, we hiked to the lake of Trecolpas, the area is nice but crowdy of hikers (it’s an easy walk).
We enjoyed the good weather and we took a family portrait.
“Look at me! I can climb high!”
At the end of the afternoon, we went back to the mountain hut to spend the night there (and take a warm meal). On our way, we met a group of big cows.
“Ho my! It’s big…”
Here are two pictures of the lake of Trecolpas
