Civil War look-out post. Sierra de La Cabrera

Civil War look-out post. Sierra de La Cabrera
The summit of Cancho Gordo looking out over a foggy Lozoya Valley. In fact the whole of Central Spain was in thick fog that day. Leaving Madrid on the bus that morning and I had no idea if I would be able to get above the clouds! Here is the answer!

Precarious lookout point, but that's always the case. They always have to be up high and on the edge. So nice to be above the clouds Andy.

THis was manned by Republicans who always expected the Nationalist march on Madrid to come from the north. In fact it came from the south and west.

Beautiful sea of fog. The look out post adds memories and troubled history to the scene.

I agree. The Civil war was (and still is in some respects) a deeply troubling era with many lessons for today.

Wow it's a great view, especially being above the clouds. You don't realise how beautiful it's going to look until you get there and see the blue sky above and the white cotton wool below.

Well worth the climb up there I should think.................such a fantastic view and a stunning shot Andy!

It wouldn't have wanted to do sentry duty up there though, especially at night or in the winter..!!
