"Kayaking adventures" day 4
The company Qalat calls this kayaking. I don't, but paddles, water and views are things in common.
We went through a protected canyon: Cañon de los Almadenes. For reference, the biggest closest city (village) is Calasparra in the more south part of Spain.
On the way: 10,000 years old cave paintings in La cueva de los Monigotes. There are more to be found, but not as much money to keep finding them.
In this area there are black wires in the air, once used for the black market.
Birds flew syncronised and there were TWO WILD TURTLES.
Most of the time the water whirls are peaceful, except when the river makes a turn sharp as an angle.
Presa de la Mulata is a an artificial waterfall of 10 meters that serves as a natural ending point of this kayak route.
Can you believe that the water level once was higher up than where I am standing?
Known as the teacher's house, but now abandoned.
Like being in an artistic film.
