A Circuit from Colio
The wild flowers today were wonderful, even as seen through the haze of vaporising sweat as it dripped from our foreheads.
Our original plan was slightly curtailed when we observed a small group ahead struggling to find the way. We were joined briefly by an Andrew from Rochdale who had been observing them. Prudence dictated a shortcut to our planned route.
Just for the record, we went from Colio up to Los Riscos > past Los Castros > the 1843 metre Collado de la Llaguna. Here we went to and fro for a while, rising to above 1900 metres, before deciding on a short cut down grassy slopes to return to Colio on good tracks past Fuente Prado.
A fabulous day out. Welcome tea then beer back at base before another good meal in excellent company at the Corcal restaurant.
There will be more about the route and the flowers etc in due course. I hope that in the meantime that you enjoy the pictures.
Thanks as always, especially to AlanR, for your comments. I'm keeping my responses to a minimum as they seem to be coming up in triplicate, resulting in time consuming deletions.
