The Knitting Tour of Spain Continues...

We arrived in Ribes de Freser Sunday afternoon after successfully navigated MANY narrow twisting mountain roads. We deliberately took scenic back roads rather than major highways and it was a bit nerve-wracking to say the least.

Ribes de Freser is about 1 1/2 hours north of Barcelona if we had decided to drive straight here!

Today we took a cog-wheel railway up to Nuria, a popular winter and summer resort, and decided to walk back down.

Here I am at the lookout facing back to Nuria just before we began our descent.

About about the half-way point, the trail crossed the river.

We left Nuria in brilliant sunshine, and about two hours later the heavens opened with lots of thunder and lightening. Fortunately we were near a "refugi", a cave with a stone bench, and I had my knitting with me!
