Part of a five-day trip from the Mediterranean sea to Le Perthus and a bit further.
Day 1: from Portbou to close to bm596

Start ± 16.00, 19.30 stop . It was nice weather, sunny but a litte hazy, not to warm.

Walking: ± 3˝ hours
Climbing: ± 600 meter
Descending: ± 100 meter
From Portbou, looking at the coast.
I climb along the road en straight over a hillside  to

the borderpass, the Col des Balitres.

Bm600, a bit further from the road then I remember.

Looking back  at the borderridge with its last kilometers to the mediterranean coast.
Bm599, easy to find.

This is a perfect time for walking the Albčres-borderridge, an abundancy of spring-flowers.
Bm598, easy to find.

Then there's a very pretty trail, climbing to  Torre de Querroig.
Bm597 - close-up
At 19.30, it's time to pitch my tent.

On a sort of pass between bm597 and 596, within 5 minutes walking of the fountain of Font de Taravaus.
