Trekking through the Picos!

July 1, 2022

Our trekking through the Picos couldn’t have been more of a success. Broad mountains, sheer cliffs, clear water and delicious food all played part in a great few days in the beautiful North Spain. Upon arrival the group was already electrified with excitement and positivity. As soon as we dropped packs at our first beautiful mountain hostel, Corbitt supplied the troops with her fitting mountain-themed playing cards and the whole group was busy for hours until dinner. (Incredible victory of Kemps by Lillian and I).

 

On the first day of trekking, LOD’s Walker and Lillian led the troops throughout the beautiful and ridiculously impressive trails of the gorge in between Cain and Sotres. Impeccable attitudes from the uniquely Arden, Anabel and Halle helped the group float through the 13 kilometers we had for us on the first day. Max the mountain goat whisperer had the group belly laughing with his instant relationships with every mountain goat (and cat) we had passed on this trek until present. At the end of the hike, we went down the valley to a crystal-clear river that flowed beautifully, yet incredibly cold. This river was not too cold for Ellie as she jumped right in for a closer look.

 

The second day of hiking was a huge success as it was beautiful weather, beautiful attitudes, and even more beautiful views of the valley in between the mountains we were hiking next to the previous day. We finished up the long but fruitful hike at a well worth mountain refuge. The third day of hiking was one for the books, we were truly up in the mountains near the peaks. Our fearless leaders Drew Thompson and Will Bennett helped lead the group way up and down the peaks just in time for the rain to come down as we were loading up into the van for Llanes for surfing and canyoneering. We were able to be under, in, above and back under the clouds throughout the day and it was an experience that none of us will ever forget, and it was a perfect way to top off our epic trekking portion of the trip.

 

Our second session couldn’t be more successful so far, the crew is getting along super well. We are pleased to be able to lead this posse throughout the mountains, canyons and coasts of Spain and Morocco.

 

Best wishes over in the states,

Corley and Ella
