Panier of Plenty

Fresh powder

A spontaneous Sunday adventure, following the Tech river up the valley from Céret to Prats de Mollo.

Crossing the Pyrénées-Orientales from France to Spain via the Col d’Ares, Canigou is left behind as the vista from the ridge of the mountain pass reveals the Pyrénées-Catalanes. As we wound our way up the road to the ski station Vallter 2000, snowflakes started to fall, adding to the magic of the morning. Fresh powder had deepened overnight and conditions were perfect…

A fresh dusting

Still snowing lightly

En route to Vallter 2000




Our snowman


An igloo!

Leaving the mountains

Near Camprodon


Back in France

Canigou, late afternoon

Changing light

Clouds shifting
