Current Snow Conditions

Just thought I'd post some photos from last week to show the current snow conditions in the Picos de Europa. Snow was late arriving this year.

It was still snowing for our group's first couple of days. (Clicking on the photos will blow them up to a large size).

What a difference sun and blue skies make!
