Took off on a hiking trip a few weeks ago. Takeaways: The GR-132 crushes, the views are wonderful, and my Spanish is still wretched. Overall, a spectacular trip.
We decided to hike the GR-132 counter-clockwise. Day 1 started at the tender hour of 11:30 a.m. and involved walking straight uphill for what felt like—and might have been—several hours.
Heading Straight Uphill was a reoccurring theme of the GR-132 and was closely followed by the also-reoccurring theme Heading Straight Downhill. Switchbacks were occasional; rocks were abundant.
Dusk came quickly. The town, alas, did not, and so we ended up dragging ourselves down trail in the dark. Since my knees had given up well before then, I spent a lot of time contemplating if it would be better to just lie down and roll myself and my pack down the trail to the valley below.
