The Ordesa y Monte Perdido National Park is situated in the Spanish Pyrenees. In 1997 it was declared a UNESCO World Heritage site. When I visited, June 2012, there was still snow in the higher areas and some trails were closed. It was interesting to observe the difference in vegetation on both sides of the mountain range. Two other hikers excitedly told me that they had spotted Edelweiss, but I’m ashamed to admit that I didn’t know what to look for.
