French Trip - Day 4 - 17/5/13

The morning was spent at Le Crau and then Les Apilles (finally we could experience some warmth) before moving north to the Alps where it was annoying to find the Cols were still closed due to the snow. A huge thunderstorm appeared from no where at Les Apilles, ending our chances of a Bonelli's Eagle. In the Alps, the plan was to stay in the Bois des Ayes but with a long detour, we decided to stay at Ristolas in the tent so we could hit the slopes the next day.
