A stroll along the Green Way

Another lovely day with a temperature of about 17°C, perfect for a stroll along the Via Verde, a leisure area for walkers, cyclists and horse riders using a disused railway track near to Olvera.
Before starting our stroll, we stopped on the Olvera to Pruna road to take a few pictures overlooking the old railway station site at the Olvera end of the Via Verde that offers a restaurant, accommodation, cycle hire and facilities for motorhomes. The nearby equestrian centre "Centro Ecuestre Platero" also offers horse trekking expeditions along the Green Way.

The "Estacion de Olvera".

Today we had the route more or less to ourselves.

Two of the thirty tunnels along the 38km route.

We made a couple of new friends along the way.

The views of the surrounding countryside are stunning.

Smoke rises from one of many fires burning leaves and old olive wood.
