Dave Rogers has posted this photo of himself entering the wild mounts of the Ariege in the Pyrenees Mountains on the first week of his Pyrenees Challenge Trek.

The night after the storm, I awoke to find my titanium tent pole bent from the wind. There was a thorough drenching all round. A randonneur (trekker) was blown off a neighboring ridge that same night. We are going very slowly due to heavy pack weight and very steep slopes up and down in the Ariege valleys.
