Alto Chorrillo to the Siete Lagunas, in Sierra Nevada

Although it’s still wonderfully warm here at sea level in Marbella, it’s quickly getting cold in the Alpujarras and Sierra Nevada, and so thought this could be our last weekend to try camping at the Siete Lagunas. Setting out early Saturday morning, we arrived in Capileira in time to catch the 3:00 PM bus up to the Alto Chorrillo, where our three-hour hike to the Laguna Hondera would begin.

Mirador de Luis Ceballos

The area around Yunquera, in Andalucia’s “Sierra de las Nieves” is famous (maybe even world famous) for its concentration of beautiful and majestic “Pinsapo” pine trees. Although we’ve been there several times in the past, we decided to head up there early this morning, to take in some of the cool mountain air.
