From Mazarron to La Pinilla

Today I travelled along the little-used mountain road between the town of Mazarron and the inland village of La Pinilla.
The road is narrow and twisty and the area is beautiful and remote. There are derelict, abandoned fincas all along the route, but no sign of life and I only met one car on my journey. The road is so narrow I had to pull in on the grass verge to let him pass. The landscape reminded me of parts of Donegal or Kerry back home in Ireland - well, except for the cactus and olive trees. I really love the old houses and I couldn´t help photographing lots of them.
