Another return to Winter really..more than cold Spring days. Unusual for mid-May, though not unheard of. The weather forecast was merely discouraging when we set out for Cantabria on Friday..and then it got worse, and worse. Though in the end the reality wasn’t so bad.
Picos de Europa, a small mountain group of great abruptness in the North of Spain, characterized by huge bowls surrounded by vertical peaks.
Once more the weather forecast was not encouraging..to say the least. Once more a group of puny humans decided to risk it. Once more they were lucky. It doesn’t always work out like this, especially when you venture into big mountain terrain.
So we’ll take our good fortune and give thanks for it, and another unforgettable four days of ski-touring in the mountains.
