My personal journal from Corsica, written over three arduous and challenging weeks on the "Grand Randonee 20" (GR20). Covering almost the whole length of the island and renown as one of the hardest of the "GR" routes, it follows a rugged and innaccessable line accross the highest peaks, never descending below 3000ft and reaching over 9000ft. Spectacular views and some awsome situations made it a must do on My wish list.
