St. Jean to Valcarlos

We are starting with "easy days".  Only 8 miles today, but most of it either up or down on steep asphalt.  As you can see in the photos below, it was beautiful country, with dairy cattle and sheep scattered across the hills.  Ruth says it was so green it almost hurt her eyes.  Started out foggy and about 52F, but the sun burned through and warmed to 77F.  We are staying in a very nice municiple refuge, with a great kitchen.  We are planning spaghetti for supper.
