Monday morning greeted us with clear and cool skies. We walked about 13 miles, again through farms and forests. The brown Aubrac cows are always with us, which happily also means the time, Cantal and St Nectaire cheeses are too. We had significant downhills treks today. We had to stop and tie our boots for the hills. Of course, then we also had major uphills sections. We were ready for a rest when we arrived about 3:00 at our place in St Come d'Olt.
