Pico Lopera, a quality ascent of modest altitude

After nearly two months having a pacemaker implant and then recovering from it, I was finally able to get out with the walking group again. We chose Pico Lopera, a modest peak in the north of the Sierra de Almijara.

After nearly two months having a pacemaker implant and then recovering from it, I was finally able to get out with the walking group again. We chose Pico Lopera, a modest peak in the north of the Sierra de Almijara.

It's only a 3 hour round trip but well worth it for the all round view both to the coastal mountains and inland back to the snow covered Sierra Nevada.

Good to be back out again in the hills!
