Picos de Europa 09/20 - 10/14/2006

Scenic mountains with some of Spain's highest peaks.
Picos de Europa — Peaks of Europe, a famous scenic area in northern Spain.
One peak in "Picos" ascends to 2,650 meters — nearly 9,000 feet. (This is not the tallest mountain.)
A hotel is situated at the base of one of the mountains. The base for a cable car sits at the bottom of the mountain and takes riders to the top — the station is barely visible at the middle on the precipice.
Cable care going up.
