... through St Vicente de la barquera. There is a huge river and bridge. We then drove via Unquera to Potes in the Picos del Europa. We saw snow on the mountains and the rivers were full.

It was really steep, but it was winding through the trees, up the mountain, and every now and then we would get an amazing view of Oviedo and the mountains in the distance.
