Location[edit]

It seems to be located on a hill, just 20 m west of a path near a windmill. It is on Carcedo's municipallity, but it is closer to Modúbar de la Emparedada, which can be accessed by bike (or on foot) easily thanks to an old railway which is now a shared path. There you must get a path going south east, towards a handful of windmills nearby.

Plans[edit]

I plan on going there some time in the afternoon, but don't know exactly when.

Expedition[edit]

Left home at ~17:30 with my bike and went towards the hash. Everything went good, but as I was getting closer to the windmills I could understand why they where there as it was quite windy and there were some hills, not very tall but steep enough so that the legs didn't like the experience too much. However, I made it to the hash without getting off the bike. Also, I lost my little printed map and couldn't find it on my way back, so I should be given an GeoTrash anti-achievement.

Once I arrived to the path that took me just near where the hash was, I took my phone out and it seemed that the GPS had gone on holidays, because it received no signal, even though I was in the top of a hill. However, the satellite image of Google Maps was enough for me to guess where the hash actually was and I walk around a little bit to make sure I had been in the proper place, so I think it can be considered a successful expedition.

I decided to go back in another different route to go through Modúbar de la Cuesta, which I have never visited before, but I didn't get a Tron achievement as there was only one path going up the hill where the hash was. You should know that cuesta means slope and I certainly understood why it had that name: almost died climbing down the hash to the village and I had to walk the last meters when climbing up to the next village (Carcedo). I finally arrived home at around 19:30 and went on with my life.
