Hermigua → Agulo → La Palmita → Agulo → Hermigua

Marko said this walk wouldn't be as difficult as the first one. Later it would turn out this wasn't exactly the case.
We looked at the mountain, but couldn't find a trail. It was steep with lots of rocks. We slowly climbed up in the burning sun, assuring ourselves we doing this for fun. After a couple of hours we reached the top and we had a beautiful view over Agulo and the sea.
Just above the artificial lake we found a place in the shade where we had lunch. Our trip actualy went to the visitor's centre, but we didn't go there that day. The day after it turned out we had been standing right in front of it.
The walk continued through a lunar landscape. It was both fun and weird. It walked very comfortably and it was very dusty. The bad part was, it was very misty. So it was not possible to take any pictures.
The descent was easy and followed a wide track. It was probably the old "horse and carriage" road.
When we arrived in Agulo it was laready getting dark. The last part went via a tarmac road back to Hermigua. At the casita were a cold beer was waiting for us.
