The water is super blue and beautiful. We park and stroll along the water's edge for awhile, dipping feet, tossing some rocks and enjoying the stunning 360 views. Just a relaxing and wonderful place.

It's a sunny but cool morning, with a bit of wind in the trees. Robledal is the "place of the oaks" and although there are plenty of these around, they're outnumbered by pines. Usually there are quite a few people around, as this is the shortest and most popular route up Maroma, ...
