La Cabrera - August heat, granite boulder and The Lozoya Valley

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

Today (25/08) was very hot on the North side of the ridge, usually the Southern side is hotter for obvious reasons.. But the breeze was southerly and made it too hot really on this side, but much nicer on the Southern slopes.

Rosa, an addition to my comment. The beauty of this place is that the distance between the northern and southern slopes is often about 10 feet as it is a knife edge in many places. Therefore a quick switch from one face to the other to get the best conditions, is easy!

Best wishese.
