The trip to the basque region was mostly about hiking in a few of the mountain ranges that are to be found in the north of Spain


plateau near Aranzazu

the mountains are for a great part made of limestone and rain and ice made those mountains look like old ladies with big wrinkles. from far it looks like they are constantly covered with snow but actually it is the gray of the limestone (like the gray hair of those respected old ladies)

The Aitzkorri is a mountain range that encloses the plateau of Urbia. On top you can see the different landscapes on both sides
