Chemin de la Mâture

Chemin de la Mâture (view)

This was one of several high points on our trek through the Pyrénées. Though you barely make it out on the photo, there is a path in the cliffs on the right side of the chasm. The pathway was carved out of the limestone by convicts under the orders of the French king in the 1700's. The idea was to access a forest which would provide trees to make masts for the royal fleet.
