Sierra del Perdón

Situated out Pamplona, Sierra del Perdón was a difficult uphill climb. I was however, compensated with a beautiful scenery.

At the beginning. Notice the modern windmills along the hills.

Spring flowers alongside on the way up the hill.

Looking back at Pamplona from the halfway point.

Almost there...

The winds is very strong up here, hence the windmills here.

After that, it's a straight and steep downhill.
