Picos de Europa Index

5th October 2018 (Friday) 


we passed part of Via Ferrata de Valdeon








Cain - start point (or end Point) for the Cares Gorge Walk
'A' group on bridge at the start of the Cares Gorge walk
Warning notice of the dangers along the Cares Gorge route
A torch is advisable in the dark tunnel sections near Cain

'window' through dark tunnel section
empty canal - presumably part of the scheme for which the access paths were originally built - no details of the hydroelectric scheme found yet on line? 



walking on the Pasarela de Los Martinez cantilevered from the Gorge Wall

remnants of structures below the path level - not clear what they were and what access there was to them

Not clear whether this was a remote farm house or used in the construction of the hydroelectric scheme?
catching up with the group on the 'B' walk who started from Cain ahead of us
apparently a hydroelectric station?
