9 November 2017 – Alt de Ample


Another good turnout for today’s walk, including David and Sabine on their first walk with the group since the summer break.   Also good to welcome Susan back after a three week break
It did not rain as forecast, but it is getting colder day by day
Everyone, except David, started off with an extra layer of clothing
Although we start the walk in Jalon, it is not long before we are out in the campo
And already more than one outer layer has been removed
By the time we reached our banana stop everyone was pleasantly warm
We were now on the top of the ridge and an easy walk away from our picnic
David made sure we had plenty of stops to have a drink and admire the view
And the view up the valley was well worth admiring
This is my favourite part of the walk, reasonably good path and no climbing
Probably the best example of mozarabic terracing in an area well known for it 
One last climb up to our picnic site
I had forgotten what a perfect sun trap it was here
And the views now were down the Jalon valley to the coast
It was so pleasant that no one was in any hurry to get walking again
The return journey is down…….
…….and down………
…..and still more down……
Followed by an easy path through the woods 
The end of another excellent walk in very pleasant company
