GR 249 Gran Senda de Malaga, Fuente de Piedras - Campillos

GR 249 Gran Senda de Málaga, Fuente de Piedra – Campillos

This is the fucking Meseta!

This is all I thought during the hike. When I thought that it can’t get more desert-like I looked around the corner and it was more yellow again. Even the plants got more and more hostile and showed up their thornes.

While visually, as shown on the pictures, it was gorgeous, vast and colorful. An ocean of wheat.

Entering “friendly” Campillos:

The base of Maslow

  • All the water I saw was stinky and dirty (turtles seam to like that)
  • The lakes which you can see on your map are not accessible
  • There is a hostel (San Francisco) in Campillos with a very gentle hostess. She ordered a taxi for me, while the lady in the bar on the central plaza shouted at me saying: “This is a village! There are no taxis in villages!”

 

I continued (by taxi) to the wonderful Camping Parque Ardales:

  1. Wunderschöne Bilder! Habe mich neulich nachdem ich deinen Blog entdeckt habe, dazu entschieden den GR221 zu gehen und sitze jetzt in Puerto Pollenca bei einem guten Glas Rotwein nach 140 km in der wunderschönen Serra Tramuntana. Dankeschön für die Inspiration! Und viel Spaß weiterhin bei der jetzigen Tour!

    • Liebe Ann-Kathrin, das höre ich sehr, sehr gerne! Toll! Diese Tour ist auch sehr, sehr schön und sehr abwechslungsreich wie du sehen kannst, nur nicht so praktisch und meine Füße sagen auch was anderes. Viel Spaß noch und guten Ausklang!
