Another trip definitely not in Southern CA, but a chance for some all-time favorite trails. I was able to spend time on the trail in Andorra, the French and Spanish Pyrenees, and Montserrat, as well as some tourist time in Barcelona and Madrid.


11/29/14  Straight from the airport to Arinsal, Andorra for a quick hike/run as far as I could get up Como Pedrosa, the highest peak in Andorra.

11/30/14  A long drive to beautiful Gavarnie on the French side of the Pyrenees. Rain and snow made for an interesting run that ended-up being a full on snow trek.

12/6/14  Madrid in a day. On my last day in Spain, I took a trip on the high-speed train out to Madrid. I went on a great walking tour of old Madrid and spent a couple of hours in el Museo Nacional del Prado.

12/1/14-12/7/14  I had the opportunity to spend almost a week in Barcelona, primarily for work, but also with some time for sightseeing. It was a great chance to explore Las Ramblas, La Sangria Familia, plenty of Gaudi, the Mediterranean, and more.
