Today was interesting. I spent 6 hours investigating the hills north of Malaga, trying to find an off-road route that went over them and to the north. However, despite there being a maze of tracks and trails, none of them lead anywhere. They all ended in someone’s expensive residence with a gate across. I think round here the tracks into the hills are just to get to houses, not to go anywhere. There may be a kind of sense to it: if a route went over the hills, then you’d tarmac it and call it a pass. See http://youtu.be/tnnyu4CWrTM I’m starting t evolve my strategy – rather than try to find routes I”ll use established routes and make my life easy, and put up with tarmac where there is no alternative. Incidentally, if you are wondering why all this text is scrunched up and there are no pics, it’s because there is a glitch on the site, which I am sure Dan will fix soon.
