Today we left the wind swept empty high plateau behind and descended 500 metres towards the valley into trees and forest again. The Aubrac region has really charmed us, partly because of its simplicity and space. The towns seem more prosperous and there are places being renovated with charm and style. The cattle are the big industry as well as tourism and walking.
Now we are heading into the Auvergne region so it will be a bit different I think and then the Lot back to a river. This trip has covered such diverse parts of France and it has been so wonderful walking through the country. The people have been so friendly and helpful and hospitable.
