Wednesday walking again starting from Salares, a pretty white village in the foothills of Mt. Maromar, the highest peak in the Axarquia at over 2000 metres.
We left the village over a delightful stone bridge across the Rio Salares, the trail led past an orange grove and then up a steep hill, taking us up 500 metres at an average gradient of 1 in 6. Very good exercise.
Elena at the top of the hill
Elena was first to reach the top of the climb so I snapped her against the blue sky as the rest of the group were arriving.
Once there I prevailed upon them all to pose for a group shot with the snowy peak of Maromar in the background.
Sedella from above
The views of Maroamar and the surrounding foothills were spectacular. here is a glimpse of a small village below, probably Sedella.
The photographs on this walk were taken with a small camera as my primary Canon was out of order. In fact there are no further blog entries for a couple of weeks while the camera was away being repaired in Madrid, and coincidentally I was preoccupied, firstly preparing to exhibit some photos in the exhibition centre in Nerja, and then recovering from a bout of food poisoning or gastro-enteritis. This resulted in a lengthy pause between blogs updates.
