Our next move was to drive 300km west to Clermont Ferand and the volcanos of the Auvergne.
We had planned to spend some time hiking around this area and needed some info so headed into the city centre.
but not the wilds I was looking for, so after a long stop at the olive oil and other overpriced frippery store , managed to get to the take off point for a hike around some volcanic comes. Unfortunately that point was a massive car park but it had a good view and as the hordes left we settled in for the night.
Bright and early we hit the trail, noticing how much cooler no colder it is now. A balloon rose over the scene
We did it the hard way while most folk took the train.
Back down through hazel wood
Back at base we planned our backpack exploration of the area to the south and drove off to Aydat from where we will hit the GR 30 at dawn tomorrow for a three day hike and leave the wheels behind.
