... the hydro plant, and its impressive "tuberia" which channels the water supply, the path gets rougher and climbs more steeply - and with more of those irritating drops in between the climbs. The ascent is therefore quite a slow one (mainly on account of me needing to stop for frequent rests) and I'm quite surprised to find, when we stop for a lunch break alongside the river, that it's already taken us 3 hours from Capileira.

I'm not all that far away from Hoya del Portillo when I pass the bus going up - and just as it would be leaving on the return downward journey, I've reached my car.
