Last Monday in the Lousa Mountains

Castelo de Arouce built in year 1080, early morning, Lousa mountains, Portugal.

A story behind:  Autumn in the Lousa mountains came rather early this year. The leaves turned colourful. The air was crisp and cool.  Soon by last days of November these trees will become bare with the first near zero temperatures in the mountains.

This Monday we had a beautiful ride around the peaks of the Lousa Mountains visiting partially abandoned famous
schist villages.
All around it has been quiet and serene - wonderful time to explore.
