Today I did my first mountain hike. The weather was not perfect, but in the end mountains get a very majestic look when in clouds, so it's worth hiking even without the sun. I tried hiking the most well-known summit - le Reculet (1717 m).
Higher parts where covered in the soft snow and it was difficult to walk ahead without snow shoes. On top of that, I didn't see any trail sign (everything was covered in snow) and the fog made the view limited, so in the end, I didn't reach the cross which stands on the top of the mountain. But that's fine, I will have plenty of opportunities yet to climb le Reculet. Most probably I'll have a next trial the next week.
