I couldn’t get to Lescun the day I travelled because I arrived at Olorons, from Toulouse, at nine in the evening. Too late for buses and hitching. I missed the bus the next day and hitched instead. I first went to the Pyrenees village of Lescun in 2007. This year I wanted to rest there to enjoy the place. It’s a singular location with peaks like the Dolomites in the distance and a lush green valley. The camp site, Camping Lauzart, is thus one of the best you will find anywhere. My pitch was at the edge of the site with a view of Le Billaire directly in front of me.
