Snow, Sun and Fun! Ciao winter!
The afternoon sun through a snowy pine-forrest Dear Citizens of the World! The winter is comming to an end! Yippeeeeeee! Recently we (six fearless mountaineers from the AtuBola Group) were able to go for a hike in the mountains of Madrid. We started in Miraflores de la Sierra and went 500 meters up to Morcuera mountain pass ( gps route in wikiloc ). It was a cold day, but we had lots of sun. The Sierra is beautiful with snow and we had lots of fun trying to hike up and down some of the sections with snow that came up to our thighs. I leave you with a few pics and comments from our trip: Fall's last breath caught in the ice ... Still cold, but... Spring starts to rear it's head amongst the vestiges of last year. A mountain goat moving slowly through the snow near the mountain pass... Shadows of dead weeds... Tones of bare trees and snow... The ice-cicles mix with the roots... Pillows of snow covering the bolders... You are welcome to the villages public slaughtering...and feast!
