... an international natural park with
several overlooks on the Portuguese side (maybe Spanish too) which I hit in the
morning before continuing on to the Alto Douro wine region. The Grand Canyon it
is not, but it’s an impressive gorge even if the river is now dammed at spots
for hydroelectricty and flood control.
Miranda do Douro is another one of those places where I
continued to be ...
... as I'd enjoyed the lovely sandy gravel for the last hour and hang a left and there before us is the River Elsa (the same one by the ruins a few days ago) stunning in the early morning light and can't be captured on point and shoot! Another of those memories to keep.
But before we can get there we have to negotiate the mud, the puddles, the rocks, the serious downhill - you know the ones where you see the crest and nothing below? The mud was nowhere ...

With a hot plate we could boil water for tea and we could heat the mini toasts for brekky. Started our walk with warm bellies which was great on 3.3 degree start. Nutters!
Out the door by 6:05 down easy rural farmland roads for the day. Well marked and no geographical challenges ...
