That machine was connected to a tractor by a belt (can't see an engine..) and used for harvest the wheat and turn the straw into straw bales. :beerchug:

Enjoying my last few days living in the Pyrenees - 2500m on saturday then 3000m on Sunday. Hillclimb tonight will be FUN.

Cirque de Troumouse on Saturday: The best climb round here. Honestly if you're visiting to have a go on the Tourmalet you should have a look at this road:

Col de Spandelles then Soulor and Aubisque on Sunday:

How about something a little flatter then? Only 850m of climbing, but picturesque none the less:
