Adventure - Ribes de Fresser, Spain - 9/12/14
Finally getting these pictures posted. This was the beginning of my adventure to get to the Pyrenees with my friend from Spain, Jose Antonio, who was my excellent guide.
Ribes de Freser is a small mountain village at the foothills of the Pyrenees. It is some of the training grounds for the famous Spanish athlete Kilian Jornet; and nearby, he won the Ultra Trail Andorra in 2009.
Originally the village was a farming and mining community, then it became famous for its paper mills in the late 19th century, and now, it is a place for summer and mountain tourism.
We arrived here to spend the night, and ran to the Taga (a mountain top nearby). The next morning we continued our adventure on the famous cremallera railway which snakes its way up to the small ski town and pilgrimage site of Nuria - on of the most magnificent journeys in the Pyrenees.
