I walked today with the 6 women – somewhat spread out but keeping an eye out for each other. The one in front took a wrong turn and disappeared near the end. However, thanks to tracks on maps.me, she found her way back and into WhatsApp contact.
This region has red clay in abundance, and seems to be famous for its pottery and cave houses. There were several villages built into the hillsides as caves. Even industrial caves – parking for tractors, etc.
Here is an old abandoned house.
And even a highway tunnel.
The last several km were tedious road-walking but we saw not one vehicle. We entered the town of La Peza from a high vantage point.
The albergue was going to be overflowing, so ML and I took rooms in a Casa Rural. Tomorrow most of the group have a townhouse booked in the next town.
