Despite an extremely strong wind, “un vent à décorner les boeufs” as we say in French “which literally translated means “a wind to knock off the horns of oxes” or simply a wind that will blow you away, we went for a hike this afternoon. I have to admit that once or twice it felt like I was actually being blown away. One positive side of it is that on an incline just before reaching the “Col de la Croix”, the wind was pushing us forward making the uphill climb unoticeable.
The Sculpture Trail is a hiking trail located in the commune of Mayronnes in Aude (11). This route of approximately 5.2 kilometres represents an average of 1h30 of walking.
Several small streams in a majestic setting in the heart of the Corbières and the Val de Dagne, admire the many sculptures that guide your way. Surprising and magical, in the heart of the Corbières, Art and Nature meet here in a route full of surprises and discoveries.
I do not think I have missed many of the sometimes weird sculptures
Not the longest hike but a lot of up and down in sometimes very rocky paths.
The hike is from Sentiers de France
Glad to be home with a nice cup of tea. Whisky would be better but as you all know I have started another alcohol free diet exactly a week ago.
