THE Costa Blanca Mountain Walkers went on a six day walking holiday to Cazorla, a town within the largest National Park near Granada.
Walks ranged from 8km to 22km and were generally six to seven hours in duration. About 600m to 800m were climbed most days and on one climb they reached a height of more than 1,900m.
Day one was to the Cazorla river valley, day two to Guilillo summit and a circuit.
On day three the group arrived at the top of one mountain, looked into a canyon and were treated to a fantastic aerial display by Charrow vultures.
Day four was to Borosa River, Day five to Lamessa and Gorge from Nava San Pedro and day six was to the Guadalquivir River and waterfalls.
Each evening everybody gathered together in the Hotel courtyard to sooth their aches and pains with a drink or two followed by very good meals at the hotel.
The last evening and a real ‘rave up’ which had everybody dancing.
A thank you should go to Pat Moss, who was the sweeper/back marker, who did an excellent job; this is not the easiest of jobs and can sometimes be quite lonely.
And also to John Price who gave a lot of his time and effort in the planning of this holiday – together with walk leader Peter Green – which he was unable to take part.
