Had to walk up to two cols today. I think from here on out the trail starts to get tougher every day.  It has also been getting noticeably hotter too, so I’ve got my hat on with the flap to protect my neck, and I’m wearing gloves to stop my hands from turning into charcoal. Yeah, I’m 2500 meters closer to the sun when I get to a col.

Passed by another ruin on my to Col de Mallemort. I can’t imagine how people lived up here back in the day. I can’t imagine living without a movie theater nearby. No library? Good thing I’m doing this walk for only three and a half months.

It was a long walking day, but I got to Larche in good time and found my campsite outside of town on the GR5 trail, and managed to pitch my tent before it started to rain. Eh, I hate wet tent mornings.
