Vasar de Mulhacen

#walking #video

The national park bus dropped us off, it was nice to feel the cooler mountain air. The clouds enveloped us on and off. A big boom of thunder decided where we would spend the night. Only a drop or two of rain fell on us, we were lucky the storm stayed to the north of us. The wind picked up, we hunkered down in our sleeping bags and awoke in the early hours to a brilliant starry sky until the full moon arrived. An early start was needed because we couldn't get to our planned bivvy site due to the storm. The next day was cloudless and perfect walking conditions. We had a brilliant two days.

It was quite humid up there which gave us some great entertainment from the clouds rolling in and out
