Guest writer Ian Tupman describes a walk into the western side of the Poqueira valley, above Capileira Last week I made a short trip back to Salobreña on the Costa Tropical. I had some business appointments during the week but I hoped to spend at least one day walking in the mountains. It rained heavily on the Friday night with more rain on the Saturday but the forecast for the Sunday was good.
The Guardia Civil had to carry out 6 helicopter flights in the Sierra Nevada to rescue 18 mountaineers Unbelievable I know but 18 mountaineers had to be rescued from the Sierra Nevada over the past weekend even though we are still officially in “summer” mode.
My translation of the newspaper article is below which summarises the events over the weekend. But, what lessons can be learned from this?
In my opinion
We have teamed up with Casa Ana to offer you a great introductory offer to this new and exciting 6 day walking with nature holiday. The wonderful Beeeater Next dates for this 6 night, 5 day tour will be 28th May - 3rd June 2017. It’s an opportunity to explore the wildlife of the Alpujarras and enjoy the surrounding area on guided nature tours.

Successfully completing an exercise like this helps to build confidence and when you need to navigate in ‘anger’ you know that you CAN trust your compass” A report from Ian Tupman
Retirement brings advantages when it comes to getting into the mountains, one of which is being able to wait for good weather. The forecast the other day was for the possibility of a few isolated showers in the morning and for the cloud to break up during the afternoon.

The 5th to the 8th of December this year has been a “puente”, a Spanish holiday celebrating both the new constitution in 1978 and the immaculate conception, several years earlier.
