We leave Orisson , but not before observing a beautiful sunrise with clouds caressing the valley.
We have opted for the Napoleon route which is more challenging but especially scenic, if the fog doesn’t hinder our view.
Horses are free to graze along the road and hillside.
…and sheep allow us to tread through their turf, as well.
The video below is a short insight into our time spent sharing the path with sheep. ding, ding, ding… Heard bells much of the morning.
Interesting to note that the flock has a definite leader. I can understand the references to sheep more than 500 times in the Bible to help us understand concepts and human behavior. My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me. (John 10:27
When you share the path with sheep and horses, you have to expect to watch your step! This is probably why boots are not allowed near the beds in the albergues!
We are enjoying the mild, but cool, temps as we trudge along. However, we must continue to be aware that the Pyrenees are known for unpredictable weather. We were previously told of helicopters having to rescue injured pilgrims on this stretch… Yikes!
