Magical Places in the Foothills #1

On a walking trip recently in the Foothills we descended a rocky gully into a river gorge and came  
  upon this cave cut into the cliff by the river.  An amazing spot - blue green water reflecting             
  patterns   onto the honey coloured rocks.  Above us Griffon vultures soared and Nightingales            sang in the  undergrowth.  A magical moment in a wonderful week.

20,000 years ago these Foothill canyons were inhabited by early man who hunted deer and horses and found refuge in the many cave shelters around.  You can still see paintings in some of them.   More info on our tailor made trips at
