When we went to Spain, we spent several days taking short road trips into the mountains above the Costa del Sol, returning to a condo on the beach each evening. We drove through beautiful national forest land, down into valleys and back up again, wondering why the Spanish had never discovered the use of tunnels through mountains. I have been sorting through old slides, but today I’m only going to share one picture–with two views–of a mountain scene along the road.
We definitely did a double take when we saw this sight. A quick u-turn and we tried to get a picture before the goat was spooked. Because of the terrain, we couldn’t get much closer, and the old camera’s zoom certainly was not as effective as today’s digital. But here’s a second view–cropped with Picasa–so you can do your own double-take.
