Bernia Walk with Guests – 11th February 2011

Today we are walking the imposing Bernia Circuit

After a 2km walk on the flat we reach the Font

Charlie has a quick drink before we start the ascent

The views are spectacular

It’s a bit of a pull going up, but we have plenty of breaks to admire the views

After about an hour we reach the Forat

It’s a small tunnel that we negotiate – everyone has there own method – usually accompanied by fits of giggles – Valerie was no exception!

The tunnel is only about 20 meters long and opens up to a large cavern

With fabulous views of the sea out to the Bay of Altea. We walk along the south side of the ridge and the sunshine and warmer weather has helped the flowers bloom – Spring in February!

We admire the first asphodel – these will grow to about 4ft high and have massive flower heads.

The deeply coloured Wild Iris

The pretty Rock Roses

Colourful Thistles

Bright Yellow Jonquils

We then follow the track across the scree

Below a large goat herd – who were quite interested in our progress

The walk is about 4-5 hours depending on how many times you stop to admire the views and take photographs
