Why restoring an old mountain refuge is good for the soul
In the past week we have been helping to restore the Refugio de Caballo, at nearly 3000m in the mountains of the Sierra Nevada, Spain. Very hard work, but it has allowed us to give something back to the mountains that have given us so much over the years. Magical! The refuge and lake in winter The refuge is in a superb situation below the 3009m summit of the Cerro de Caballo, above the Alpujarras town of Lanjarón, and adjacent to the lake of the same name.
