In a beautiful area in France, not far away from the ocean and with a fabulous climate, lies the wild Moors of Cragou. It is located near Pleyber Christ, Bretagne. The wild Moor of Cragou is managed by the association of Brittany Vivante. It is considered as a Reserve area and serves as haven for the wildlife so that the animals and plants can reproduce. In this area, people are forbidden to build houses, buildings or roads. The rocks stand 282 m above the sea level and remain untouched by mankind, with the exception of a few brave hill-walkers.
I went there with Alan and one of his nephews. We walked on the hills; we climbed huge rocks; experienced the tremendous beauty of nature; breathed fresh air; and simply enjoyed the view. It was marvelous!
I had a mixture of feelings while we were walking up and down the hills until we reached the top of these huge rocks. I felt very lucky to experience the wonderful nature far away from the huge crowd, far away from any forms of pollutions and with the feeling that the world was a crystal made of living things. While hiking the hills with a rugged terrain and climbing the huge rocks, I was pretending that I could do it all by myself. Even though my legs ache, I didn’t want to stop. I had a strong desire to continue the hike and reach my goal. And, I did it!
We climbed two huge rocks with loads of spiky plants surrounding them. When I was on the top of those huge rocks, I could never exactly really explain how it looked like. The breeze blew through my hair and cooled me down instantly. The sun shone just right in my eyes and somehow it felt like a blessing. I heard the humming birds hovering from flowers to flowers and from tree to tree. I wanted to shout to the world how fortunate I was of having such an amazing experience. I had a feeling of being powerful, accomplished, peacefully excited and calm at the same time. Indeed, I am proud of myself for having made it that far!
Have you ever been hill-walking through beautiful wild moors?
