Today’s walk was a circular walk from Gata. It’s a walk we have done a few times before, and is memorable for the long, long climb up to the summit of Soldates
The first section is along an easy track and down to the dry river bed
Then a lovely section through the woods, particularly attractive on a nice sunny day like today.
Our first break was a short stop just before we started the climb. Being a very warm day we were all in need of lots of water – even before we started the on Soldates.
Reaching the top is a great sense of achievement, and a very welcome rest
And of course there are the views
Having done all of that climbing, it was then downhill on a very difficult track to our lunch stop
After lunch the walk provided excellent views of and the coast
