Puig d’es Tossals Verds

The weather forecast was mixed as we drove our to Cuber Reservoir. My plan was to climb Puig d’es Tossals Verds accompanied by Bill and Krystl.

We set off along the GR 221 following the concrete canaleta. High up to out left we could sometimes see the radar installations on the top of Puig Major but they kept disappearing into the cloud. We crossed the canaleta via a ramp and then began to climb up through the oak woods on an old charcoal- burners trail. At the top of the Coll d’es Colloms we turned right at a signpost and began our main climb.

It was so peaceful as we climbed through the woods, just the sound of birdsong and the gentle patter of rain.

Above the treeline the path got steeper but there was some lovely mountain scenery. Many of the rocks looking like monsters if you used your imagination.

After about two hours walking we reached the summit at 1115 metres. We could look down on Gorg Blau where the water level was very low.

We spent some time at the summit but it was too cold to remain for long.

We returned by the same route and eventually the sun came out.

About crosbyman66

My aim is to create a photo diary of my walks and my travels. I have two main hobbies, walking and photography and these complement each other. I am a senior citizen, what used to be called an old age pensioner, but I don't feel old. Since retirement I have had more time to pursue my hobbies and the opportunity to travel more. My philosophy now is - Do what you can, while you can. My other interests are fine wines and keeping fit. These may not complement each other but keep me happy.
