Wow what a day! Well we decided to decend into the Rio Higueron Valley today below Frigiliana and walk up the La cuesta del sordo (Deaf man’s ridge)between the Higueron and the Rio Chiller. We all expected wet paws due to the recent rains but none of expected to see the damage that has been caused. The lower path that follows the river bed has been well and truly battered by the water and looks completely different we ended up doing most of the first part of the walk following the higher path that follows the water channel because the lower path has completely gone in places.
Once we left the bottom of the valley and started the trek upwards the views were well worth the wet fur. A perfectly clear day offering total 360 degree views, we were even treated to a sight of two wild goats looked like a young one with its mother. I did give a little growl but thought better than to argue with a protective mummy.
After a stop for a wee couple of bikkies and a slug of water at the top we decended down the southside of the ridge where we joined the lower part of the river again. This time though there is no alternative path so lots of splashing and jumping was called for as we followed the river back up to our starting point.
