LookOut, What a View!!!

We’ve left the small Spanish town of Padron, and are taking small roads that weave though the hills and down the coast as we head back Southwards to Portugal.

Kilometers pass, and we see a large variety of landscapes, some parts are more built up, industurial, commercial, other parts are very run down and neglected and there is everything inbetween.

Coming over the crest of a steep hill on a more inland part of the route we see below us a steep little hill that almost pokes up out of nowhere… there’s “something” at the top that we can’t make out, and a clear road up to it.

We decide to make an investigative detour.

Our little hill is deceptively steep and have been made useful as it now serves as a Lookout point. A good  place to take a short break from driving, stretch our legs and grab a breath of fresh air.

The short stagger up to the top is worth it… I can see for Miles and Miles and Miles…(or Kilometers in my case)….

  1. There’s something about looking out over a great mountain view that makes me feel like I could just fly out over the landscape! The views from the top always make hikes worth it, don’t you think?
