19. The Cares Gorge IV

Another dramatic view from the gorge which certainly was one of the highlights on the trip. There was a bridge over which only one person at a time could walk, because of the poor shape the bridge was in. And as I was resting, I noticed something moving high up the mountain wall on the other side, which seemed to step even for goats – it was hikers on their way down.

Having walked the full gorge, I was quite tired, but it was not over: I still had 6 km back to Arenas de Cabrales and no known connection. (In the morning, I had taken a taxi.) Thankfully I was able to get a hitch with some people that were at the same café.
