Early mornings result in long shadows, cold hands and breakfast in the sun.
Our last day of the road trip to Spain, we spent hiking to Mulhacen and then driving towards El Pozo del Esparto, our final destination. In order to make this happen in one day we decided to reach the Poqueira hut the day before and spend the night there. This was probably one of the best huts I’ve ever stayed in. It can house up to 80 people, has no cell phone signal, but it has hot food and free wi-fi – everything a modern-day mountaineer needs.
We rose early to make sure that we have enough time to do the whole circuit to the top and back without rushing. And once again, several hours later and just like the day before, the hut surprised us by appearing around the corner when we though we had at least another hour to go. If only every hut would be hiding around the corner like that…
