Jimera, Andalusia, Spain; April 28th to May 5th 2005

Ruth and I had a short break based at Terra Firma, Jimera (south of Ronda), Andalusia and here are some of the photos!
During our stay we did three great walks:

April 30th - The walk of the Libar Valley 14.5k + 5k at the Cortes end and 3k at the Benaojan end(Cortes station - Benaojan Station - Montejaque - Cortes - Cortes Station, we hitched a lift for the last downhill section!) Avoid this walk on public holidays and weekends because there is a campsite further up!!
May 2nd - Ronda - Benaojan Station (shortish walk)
May 4th - Goatherd's Leap Grazalema to Benaocaz 16.9k (and walked/hitched back)

Signs saying Coto or Coto privado de caza refer to where hunting is permitted in season. They do not mean you are walking on private property. Ganado bravo designates an area where you could find a bull!

These are my first real attemts with the 20D. A long way to go :-) !!

Thankyou for visiting!
