Landscapes and wonderful views

To help the 2 people who pass this way once a year!

To help the 2 people who pass this way once a year! 

There is a route of sorts here. It is more fun that the lower path you can see below.
I know who set up this carn. I was walking in another part of the Sierra a few months after this shot and saw a young (to me ) chap making a similar carn. He saw me and we exchanged Spanglish pleasantries and walked together for a few hours and chatted away. I met him a couple of times later in the Sierra as well, once with his wife and once when I was with my girlfriend (one of only two visits to these mountains with me!). Turns out he was (maybe still is - I've lost touch recently) the mayor of Valdemanco. Although young (maybe 28-30?), he was a bright spark if ever there was one! And I wasn't surprised that the village elders trusted him!

Interesting story! So a Spanish mayor has time to wander around in the sierra and build cairns;-)

Valdemanco is a village. As in France, every community, no mater how small, elects its own mayor! Maybe he doesn't have too much to do!
