Again another example of the great day that happened almoste 3 years ago, when almost all the peaks in the Pyrenees were able to be seen from a single viewing location.
Exceptionally good visibility conditions allowed us to see further than 250 kilometers away, covering the whole range, from the peaks in Navarra to the peaks in Cataluña.
In this case, Pica de Estats, the highest peak in Cataluña, is seen here 285 kilometers away.

There is a simulation from Ulrich Deuschle here to have a look at the peaks that can be seen in the image:
