Leaving in our motorhome convoy with our friends, we passed through stunning scenery on our way to the famous cable car at Picos De Europe !!
After an encounter with a brown bear, we bravely board the cable car ……up, up to the heavens! . . . . looks more like a moonscape on the top! We speed up in only four minutes and spend at least an hour exploring the Rocky Summit. Needless to say, the views are amazing!
Driving south again, through Spain, more dramatic scenery, rock tunnels and hair raising blind corners we arrive at Leon. Bruce rests up exhausted with 24 other motorhomes beside the river near the old town.
The Gothic 12 century cathedral is majestic with over 1 sq km of stained glass in all the windows! We wander through the old city, admiring the many grandiose buildings, including one by the famous architect, Gaudi !
