Will post properly about it tomorrow as we just got back but have to tell someone it was one of our best hols ever. (only downside was this morning our camera card got corrupted so we may have lost all our pictures - really really hope not)
Most beautiful place in the whole world. Lots of hiking in the mountains. Lovely lovely campsite with swimming pool but went amazingly silent at 10pm and nobody made any noise til 8am so we got fabulous sleep. Fantastic thunderstorms, ate hugely with loads and loads of local fresh peaches and plums.
Wish we were still there!

We got wet

Sorry to hear that mehgalegs - I hear the weather has been pitiful here.

there was a bit of wet but we kind of expected it so didnt mind. Temps ranged from 7C one day when it hailed and thundered to around 25C. At night it was close to freezing sometimes. It was just so perfectly beautiful though and enough sunshine to dry stuff after the wet bits.

And the utterly coolest bits - I saw a golden eagle close up and also discovered that marmots really do whistle.
the bestest hikes ever.

I know nothing about the area but will research when my brain is awake. It sounds fantastic!
