Sierra de Segura Mountains

Today is our last day in Andalucía, 26 days here and they have been a real treat. Wednesday was the first day of clouds since we arrived in Spain April 25 but by late morning it was partly cloudy but cool….63 for a high. Lows have been 43 degrees. Here are a few photos of the 2 places we visited in these beautiful mountains.
