GCSE field trip to the Sierra Aitana

dscn6648

Setting off from the Font de Partagat, we made a decision to keep to our original plan – although there was some cloud on the Aitana ridge.  This was the right decision in the end because the cloud was intermittent through the day, allowing safe walking conditions for the walk along the ridge.  Looking down from the highest point in the region, it was possible to monitor incoming cloud and continually assess the safety.

The Simas de Partagat were not seen by all the students, as some had become too tired after a 3.5 kilometer walk uphill and they did not want to continue to the intended goal.  They remained with one member of staff while the remaining nine continued to the Simas de Partagat.

About Gareth Thomas

A fairly mixed career starting as an aircraft technician and later Franciscan friar eventually led into secondary school teaching. I settled in Spain where I teach Geography part-time and spend the rest of my time looking after the needs of four donkeys in a remote location in the mountains in the Costa Blanca. I have two blogs: a geography blog and a donkey blog.
