Invasion of the tall and American


I'm lost in projects. How about a couple of photos to tide things over?

Sunday I hiked from La Alberca down to lovely Herguijela de la Sierra, population 299 (says Wikipedia). Before friends drove us back to our starting point, we wandered the town, where we were warmly greeted as a welcome Sunday anomaly. Company!

I love the size of my fellow American-Salmantino in this photo. That and the gorgeous faces and sierra hospitality of his Sunday bench companions.

I can report, based on this hike, that the peaks of the Sierra de Bejar are blanketed with snow, the rivers of the Sierra de Francia are filling fast, and at least one wild boar (jabalí) is snickering about the accident prone wanderer who tripped in one of his leaf-covered snout tracks.

  • Gracias, bloguera bilingue ;)
    Es que me encantan los pueblos de la Sierra de Francia. ¡Me encantan! A los serranos les encanta charlar, con quién sea...sobre lo que sea...durante horas. La vida tiene otro ritmo.

  • Here's one used-to-be-wandering woman who is stuck at the moment but enjoys reading about others' adventures. Yours are fascinating!
