Picos De Europa

Bob says: Following the shite weather on the coast we headed for the mountains and found beautiful sunshine and amazing views in The Picos De Europa. We spent a couple of nights there and did what is regarded as the finest walk in Spain through the Cares Gorge. The gorge was around 9km long starting at the top where the walls of the gorge were only about 10 feet apart running through to the end where the river was cutting through 2 huge mountains about 2500 metres in height. At the beginning of the gorge the river was ciphoned off into a canal that ran the length of the gorge. The canal weaved in and out of the rock face and close to the end of the gorge, as far as we walked, was around 400 feet above the river. Simply an amazing piece of engineering.
