Get moving, Carol!

Cute little power station at a reservoir.

To the very top, again. I will try to post a video some time. After driving up a crazy road, it’s a bit of a surprise to see vans and campers and a food cart at the top!

The sign says the road is open 4km, but the cycle insurance doesn’t cover dirt, nor do I have the nerve!
Stickers on signs everywhere.
I really did not expect a food cart at the top of the mountain. I wonder if they came up in one of the RVs towing this. I can’t imagine, given the road.

When choosing a restaurant for dinner, I saw a photo on Google Maps of a cheese board and immediately knew that I had to try it. The little town of Pola de Somiedo is charming, and also seems well planned. They’ve invested in infrastructure. A camper van park right in town, an upgraded river walk, and also a sort of fair grounds for cattle showing or trading, also right in town, which sounds odd but works.

I have 2 more days of riding and I just want to spend the morning in bed!

  1. Thank you for this blog. Mountains forever and food! Great scenery, architecture and comments. You are the ultimate traveler in my book.

  2. Mmmm cheese. Cattle trading/showing area does sound interesting. Is this a trade centered around milk or meat production, or neither, do you think?
