This year the Sierra Nevada is different, its still covered in snow, not just a little bit of snow but metres deep amount of snow, thanks to the amount of rain that fell on Andalucia this winter.
In fact Andalucia received 4 years of rain in just 3 months! So our 2 day crossing was a rather interesting affair, it was full on winter conditions. There are quite a few pictures for you too look at so im going to keep the writing short and let the pictures tell the story.
We got dropped off at the Hoya de Mora above the ski station at a height of 2500m at 21C. We headed South and hit snow at 2700m. We spent the night at the Elorrieta hut (3180m), which used to be a TB hospital!
It was freezing cold up here, we had to have all our layers on, and even got into our sleeping bags early to stay warm, yet it was a barmey 30C in Lanjaron. The next day we headed over Tajos de los Machos and down towards the Cebollar hut, crossed the Rio Chico and back to Puente Palo where we got picked up and driven back to Lanjaron.
A Husky Life: Wow, amazing!
