  A gentle, forested, climb continuing to follow a favourite route of Le Tour de France.

  At the top of Col d'Aspin, cows blocked the way.

Then a wet descent into Arreau. There are many micro-climates in the Pyreneen valleys, and Arreau seems to be predominantly wet in the shadow of l'Arbizon (2831m) - but pretty architecture nontheless, and we found precious ice-cream.

The next climb is Col de Peyresourde
