Just west of Guadix, the Sierra de Baza joins the Sierra de Nevada. Todays photo was taken on the way to Malaga this afternoon and shows the mountains poking out from the clouds. There is snow in both the sierras, but this was taken from a motorway services at about 800 metres above sea level in 17ºc sunshine!! The mountains shown are in the north of the sierra nevada (translates as snowy mountains) but further south and south west, the ski resorts are in full swing. Thirty minutes from the ski resort is the coast of Andalucía, ideal for swimming and sunbathing in the morning and skiing in the afternoon.
