25th February 2015 Wednesday walk up Pico del Vilo

We did an old favourite this week. Starting from the village of Alfarnate we walked up good tracks and through a forest for about 2 hours to the top of Pico del Vilo.  

It was sunny on top but a very cold wind we had some marvellous views of La Maroma, the 3 Tajos, Chamizo and could just see the mountains in Morocco. Because it was so cold we only had time for a cake and then made our way back down which only took about an hour. It was a nice walk and the ascent was well worth the effort to get the views.
