What a strange year it’s been so far! Summery conditions to start the year, days and days of sun in January followed by a week of Winter at the month’s end, with rain and snowfall. Then two almost completely dry, sun-filled months in February-March, Springy-Summer, succeeded by a kind of return to Winter in April-May with many days of rain and snowfall. Things heated up in second half of May, but then we had a relatively very cool month of June until the heatwave that threatens these last days of the month. Weird weather indeed (once again!)..
So this cool June has been perfect for outdoor activities, and we’ve been getting out there, rock-climbing, mountain biking, hiking, shooting arrows in the forest, and more.
Riding the mountain train to Puerto de Navacerrada allows for cool downhill biking in the evenings on the days that the temps do go up a bit..
The tops of the mountains still retain the last vestiges of Winter (even if a very scarce one) though the residual snowfields gradually dwindle..doesn’t look like they will make it to July this year.
