Photo running challenge // Беговые заметки натуралиста

Today’s running path was in the mountains of La Esperanza close to Las Lugunetas (map). To say it was beautiful is to say nothing. This path starts in the forest and goes uphill for ca. 4km, then to somewhat looking like a flat area with fantastic opening views from the top; around the top and back down to the other part of the forest.

Literally every 3-5 minutes landscapes are changing their sceneries, colours and ‘decoration’ details, so that it is nearly impossible to run by without stopping (and catching a breath, lol).

running, happy, fun

We’ve seen quite a few cyclists passing by, but no other runners than ourselves. And – which was rather pleasing! – no cars at all as the way is too unprotected and narrow at times. Perfect for trekkers, in other words!! :)
