GR1 Week 3: Canyons, Canines and a (mini) Crisis

In week 3 the GR1 got tougher as we plunged into the jumbled geology of the Sierra de Cadi. There were some bird highlights, plenty of dog encounters (good and bad), some logistical difficulties, heavy packs and few more hotels than planned. A timely decision at the end made all the difference.

West with the sun.

Camped on the Mediterranean coast and poised to begin the GR1, we are tired from travel and frazzled from planning, but the ideals behind the journey are still intact. A final review of thoughts before the long walk west.
