Picos

further to my thread on March 19. re. vsiting the Picos.
Have just got back from a very satisfying 7 days & 10,000 hairpin bends ( a few of which I got right ! ).Varied weather, wet-2, v,hot/sunny-4, indifferent-2. On arrival the San Gloria pass was closed with snow but we rode it on day 4. Both the gorge roads were " interesting " waterfalls right across the roads, loose rocks & on one blind corner a wheelbarrow full of collected rocks in the middle of the road !!!!!!!!!!!
Stayed @ Pension La Pisa in Aniezo, 9kms south of Potes. Very comfortable, good food, drying room. English Ex- pats so no language probs.

Took the ferry to Santander (300-return ) one and a half houres into Potes. would recommend the area if your thinking of going to northern Spain.

Hope everybodys summer trips are as good...................regards, tobuk
