A sunny day. Cooled by a gentle breeze we climb the mountain through paths sparkled with the amiable fragrance of cistus, thyme and rosemary. The heart beat accelerates and we begin to burn calories as the gentle climb becomes steeper.
The setting is wonderful. We admire the gigantic rocks oozing unusual shrubs under the sky as, below and above, peregrine falcons and golden eagles display their elegant flights. A griffon vulture seated on a rock watches our ascent. In the distance, a goat chews for breakfast green branches stemming out of a huge stone. We stop on a rock to admire the landscape seen in the photograph.
