Canada del Senero, Sierra de Huetor

#Walking #AlpujarraNomads #SierradeHuetor

A nice 12km walk on a cloudy day through the lush forests along the Cañada del Sereno in the Parque Natural de la Sierra de Huetor.

Not the most inspirational of walks given the overcast conditions and general lack of photographic opportunities, but interesting nevertheless. Of special interest were the autumnal colours and variety of trees. Not only pines but many varieties including the rare Maple and Weeping Willow around the Fuente de Teja.

The highlight on a dry day would be to try to ascend the spire of El Pulpito but in the dampish conditions the limestone rock was slippy and we didn't fancy the challenge. Another day perhaps?
