I wanted to add this album about our excursion to Laguna Grande on January 17th, 2009. We spent a very good time in the heart of Macizo Central and Circo de Gredos. Instead of ascending Morezón (2389 m) we decided to walk to Laguna Grande, a beautiful glacier lake in the circus. Crossing from shore to shore on the ice and snow that cover Laguna in winter is one of the best experiences that you can have in Gredos. I hadn't had it since the early 90s. Being there this year with Nadie and such good conditions was simply fantastic. We spent 3 hours to reach the lake and 2 hours 30 minutes in the return to La Plataforma (1760 m). On the ascent we passed near Refugio de Reguero Llano (1910 m) and followed the normal route when descending.

Re: Good album

Gracias Ricardo, a mi también me gusta aunque creo que está un poco sobreexpuesta. Gredos me trae muchos recuerdos, desde que tenía 6 años lo he estado recorriendo...
