The monastery from above, for a change.

The monastery from above, for a change.
Convento monasterio de San Julian y San Antonio seen from the path to the top of El Cancho Gordo, Sierra de La Cabrera. This path is steep and direct, mainly used by rock-climbers on their way to climbs. But it is perfectly do-able as a quick (30 minutes) short-cut, avoiding the dusty and awkward main path (1.5 hours plus) that zig-zags here, there and everywhere!

As you know, I come here often (5 years ago twice a week, now reduced to maybe 2-3 times a year for health reasons) and have an enormous backlog of photos!
Pleased you like this granite scenery, Jocelyne. Thank you and have a great weekend!

I've shown so many of the monastery with the cliff face as backdrop, Keith that I thought I ought to show that I do also get up to the top and view it from there. This is because so many members ask me; 'Have you ever been to the top, Andy?' Only about 150 times!

Oh dear. The madness is happening again!

Out of deference to those good members, such as yourself, who posses a (how shall I put this?) somewhat tender disposition, I don't post the REALLY hairy ones! ! :o))))

Well, call it like it is: cowardice! But now that I know that there a much hairier ones....

micritter, I'm sure it isn't cowardice - more a well developed sense of self-preservation - more like common sense!! :o)
