Granite with encina (holm oak) and chestnut tree. On the left is Cancho Largo and on the right; Cancho Gordo, the highest points in this sierra. Best on full screen to fully appreciate the cragginess of Las Agujas de Cancho Gordo - the needles of Cancho Gordo).

Fog in the Jarama Valley. The Sierra de La Cabrera can be seen in all its craggy but tiny extent. To the left is the brooding hulk of Mondalindo which is not granite and therefore much more rounded. Usually the mountains would be snow covered up till May but not this year. My sister's shot.

The last few wisteria leaves

Part of our front garden. It takes 100 steps to make a complete lap of this garden. Useful for me to know as I have my set daily target of steps as part of of my recovery programme.

Country path, Fuente el Saz de Jarama.

Path between Algete and Fuente el Saz de Jarama, Madrid Province. On the horizon, La Sierra de Guadarrama and La Sierra de La Cabrera. About 10 minutes walk from where I live now; I didn't when I took this! As i get back into walking mode post Covid I hope to take more shots from round here.

Granite country in the foreground. In the background, exactly in the middle of the shot is Peñalara, the highest mountain in the Sierra de Guadarrama (alternatively called La Sierra de Madrid) at 2,423 metres (7,950 feet). I worked out once that my height here when taking this shot would be approximately on a level with Ben Nevis, the highest peak in the British Isles.

Late autumnal wisteria.

Sierra de La Cabrera. Madrid is a smudge on the horizon between the two left-hand pillars. This was the last time I went walking in these mountains. My objective is to get back up there next spring and that will involve a lot of physiotherapy! But no pain no gain!
