Rock window, Sierra de La Cabrera

Rock window, Sierra de La Cabrera
Granite rock window. Overlooking the Valley of Bustarviejo. This was taken on 25 May, last year. I haven't walked anywhere in the Sierra since. Please take my word for it; this is a true rock window - I just couldn't quite get all four walls in the shot. I see photos from this Sierra on various sites but never this view. Why? Because to get here you need to scramble and to take (calculated) risks. It's never clear that you will get to a panoramic view or a rock window until it suddenly appears!
Plus, there are no restaurants anywhere near so a Spaniard wouldn't even consider a walk here. 'Sandwiches!!!!!!- Are you kidding??'

Indeed, Ronald! Thank you,
Only 20 miles from downtown Madrid and a great place for walking and I am always alone!
Madrid folk don't go for walks where you can't enjoy a 3 hour restauarant lunch and there aren't any restaurants here, so the place is all mine!!!

A perfect piece of framing Andy................and such a cracking view. I must be lovely to have such areas to yourself after the hustle and bustle of the city!

Thank you Keith.
That is certainly true but I see it has been nearly a year since I last came here, whereas 7 or 8 years ago I was walking and scrambling in these mountains twice a week!

A brrrrrrrrr point of view.... No sandwich ? But a phenomenal and well-deserved point of view and also superbly captured. Lazy people don't deserve it ;)

Andy Rodker club has replied to Eric Desjours club
Many thanks!
Exactly, Eric!
Sandwiches don't fit the Spanish psyche!
I do meet some Spaniards here, but more Bulgarians, Romanians, Russians, Morrocans, etc.
Normally no one at all! Even on spanish bank holidays and weekends!
