2017 E5 walk, day 43: Bagnoles-de-l’Orne to Carrouges
After returning to the trail, the first part of the morning continued mostly on old logging trails. It dipped down into a valley (where I saw my first official attention aux tiques (“beware of ticks”) sign), and then back up and along more logging trails.
I have very little specific recollection of this day. The logging trails, as mentioned, were pretty boring, straight and fairly wide and usually featureless. Sometime after midday, the trail emerged from the forest and into farmland, then winding northeast to the town of Carrouges.
In Carrouges, I stayed the night in an AirBnB, a spare room in a modern little flat near the town center. (To be fair, most everything in Carrouges is near the town center, but this flat was even closer than most.) The next day would be long, so I got groceries, and then walked down to the Château de Carrouges just outside town.
Afterwards, I had dinner at le Saint Pierre de Carrouges, and then returned to my room.
