Finally, with no sign that the rain would abate, we set out for a shorter hike that would drop us from the Ermita de Lomos de Orios to the falls of the Puente Ra. It was a wet, thoroughly memorable outing.
On the drive back from the trailhead, we gave a ride to a Spanish schoolteacher and her two charges who, like ourselves, had enough of Mother Nature. Other hikes, including a trail that led up into the glaciated alpine region and along an ancient Roman road to 7,000-plus-foot Puerto de Piqueras, would have to await our return.
