Cirque de Gavarnie, Gavarnie (French Pyrenees)
My pictures don't do justice to the scale of the Cirque de Gavarnie in the French Pyrenees. At 8 miles rt with 1400 ft elev gain, it was a nice day hike, after a 3 hour drive from Toulouse. The Cirque de Gavarnie consists of about 12-15 tall waterfalls cascading 1000 feet from the top of the wall to the snowy bottom of the wall. The water from all the falls seem to converge at the bottom, near the Hotel de Cirque, in a blue gushing stream. The cirque also contains Europe's largest waterfalls at 1385ft, called Grand Cascades, on the left side of the cirque when walking towards it. We met a flock (or two) of sheep along the way.

This hike was an exciting one, though short in distance. The trailhead we took was off the parking lot loop (Not the picnic area) which led us past some petroglyphs, over some short desert brush, and under giant light colored rocks dotted with many many holes.

O Canada! Canada has so much natural beauty to enjoy. From snow-capped mountains that surround you, to teal blue glacier-fed lakes, to actual glaciers you can touch, Canada has so much to experience and appreciate. Here are a few amazing places we visited.

We arrived at Pacifica Municipal Pier at around 7:30am. We came to crab. My brother had researched the different piers to crab for Dungeness crabs, and had come to a conclusion that this was the best one for such activity.

The Road to Puna
The Road to Puna (also known as Kalapana-Kapoho Road) is lined with many tree canopies. The windy road made its way mostly along the coast, with frequent views of waves crashing along the shore.
