Aigüestortes Hikes – Coll de Contraix

It doesn’t feel like you’re trying particularly hard, but the views are spectacular! On the way home, Marc declared that if/when his brothers come to visit us in Canada, he’d like to bring them here. Well, one of his brothers, Tom, and his girlfriend Andreia, came to visit us this spring….
