Aranjuez to Navarrete

C’mon guys….only one entrant for the statue caption competition so far  (it was a good entry ….and is in the running for the prize….a bottle of genuine Spanish Cava…)…get your thinking caps on.

Today we drove 364 km North to Navarrete, near Logroño, in NE Spain. We came through a spectacular gorge in the final quarter of the journey, from Soria. The trees are all a lovely Autumn gold. We passed a few lakes and reservoirs, all very empty still.
We also came across some dramatic rock pillars.

But the mist came down before we were able to scamper up any of them.

The dogs had to make do with a walk in to Navarrete. It is a small town, full of Bodegas….this is the centre of Rioja country. The town was quiet, perhaps because it was  siesta time and everywhere was shut. We will try again tonight.
