My most recent Pyrenean adventure allowed me to add some new lizard and frog spots to my collection of visited sites. The way these were added was the best: several multi-day hikes with my girlfriend Gwen. Tough hikes, splendid views, wonderful times. As this was much more a hiking trip than a herping trip, please have a look at my older reports from the Pyrenees for more pictures of the local herpetofauna.
