Estérel: Col du Mistral

Esterel: Col Mistral

Each summer, when sun and wind dry Eucalyptus and Pine trees and fire risks run high, parts of the Estérel Mountains close. The Col du Mistral was still closed to cars yesterday. This didn't stop us from hiking around Col d'Aubert and Col du Mistral, but we had to park at the Col Belle-Barbe and hike up to the Col Mistral. The Col Mistral should open up again to traffic by the end of September.
