Mountain Lakes

Left Posada de Valdeon by LE2711 heading south west to join the N625 towards Cangas de Onis. Took a right turn in the town onto the AS-114. At Soto de Congas the AS262 was taken through Covadonga to our destination at Lagos de Covadonga .

This day out proved to be a challenge for us both but the spectacular scenery was quite rewarding. Spotted a flock of Alpine Chuff  and a Vulture. At this time of year the woodland is not yet in full leaf and some is seen in white blossom. Higher up, the bare trees are draped in swathes of lichen. The snow is melting rapidly and swells the gushing rivers and gullies. 

The round trip takes about six hours including a walk around the lake and a good lunch stop en-route.
