Picos de Europa

The Picos de Europa rear up like a great wall behind the Bay of Biscay Coast, dividing the hot plains of Castille from the green and gold country of Cantabrica. The mountains are modest in terms of altitude but form the largest single mass of limestone in Europe. A walk across the Picos has been on the "to do" list for a number of years and was finally completed in September 2006 as a 9 day expedition.
