Typical Sierra de La Cabrera rock formations! Yes, I did try to rock it and yes, it doesn't budge an inch!

Superb granite contortions! La Sierra de La Cabrera, EL Cancho Largo in the background, the highest point in the sierra at 1,563 m. So not a giant but because it is isolated from the main ridge and rises directly above the plateau to the north of Madrid, it seems much taller! Anyway, at 5,128 feet it knocks spots off Ben Nevis! l

Le va bien el nombre, porque supongo que derivará de “cabra” animal que le gusta vivir por estos terrenos pedregosos. Buen tiro.

Thank you, José!
I don't know. The Sierra rises above the town of La Cabrera, whose name could have originated from the Spanish for goat.

It sits there beautifully Andy....I don't think the town below would be too pleased if you dislodged it ;-))

The only thing below it (at one time, not now) were a few beehives, Rosa!
The villagers place their hives in these out of the way places to keep them away from thieves! As you can't see these boulders, let alone the much smaller hives, from the path, which is in itself indestinct and little used, the location for the hives is perfect!
They also move the location of the hives every few years to stay one step ahead of the thieves. I see the hives in other equally well-hidden locations in the Sierra.
It's a wonder the bees don't get confused! :o)

Don't you just hate thieves! Such a shame that happens, but bees are very clever :-))

It's always amazed me how some stones are able to balance well, despite the size of them. Great picture here Andy

The ones that weren't so perfectly balanced (and there would have been lots) can be seen but strewn, shattered, all around, Jenny!

I doubt it, Amelia. You can't really get an idea of the scale but it's the size of a small car.
