AROUND 20 people took to the slopes in snowshoes this weekend for an Adra-council organised hike in a mountain region on the Almeria-Granada border.
Guided by four monitors, the group enjoyed the combination of serious exercise, bracing mountain air and spectacular scenery of the Puerto de la Ragua.
The five-kilometre route across the snowy landscape took around three hours, and was, the participants reported, “a lovely experience” and “a great adventure.”
The Adra local authority walking programme contines on Sunday March 1 with a 10-kilometre walk to Trevelez in the Granada Alpujarra mountain region. The trip is open to participants aged 10 years and above, the council said, and will set off from the Adra Red Cross at 8am.
Registration in the ‘Adra en la Senda’ programme is at Oficina de Juventud in Edificio Plaza del Ayuntamiento de Adra from9am to 2pm Monday to Friday. Alternatively call 677 942 005 or email electronico for more information.
