Valle de Anso and Valle de Hecho

A chill wind fom the north west gradually turned more westerly and warmed to a scorching hot sun.  Stopped at a petrol station our exit was delayed on meeting with four other Morgans from Yorkshire, UK;  en-rout from Bilbao to Andora.  Fresh off the ferry their paintwork sparkling against our desert dusted M44.

The approach to Anso was made from Jaca on the N240. Once off this dual carriageway the way becomes scenic to the point of making photo stops irresistable. The river Veral slices virtically into the limestone hundreds of feet. Beech, Fir and Pine trees cover much of the ground. Virtical crags come into view at intervals along the narrow road that skirts beside the river.

Anso was quiet being Monday. We had missed the festival when young bulls are free to run through the streets.  A faster new road has opened up the village approach from Hecho and our stop there in search of coffee failed.
