Recently I took a stroll through the old town, and I stopped to visit a friend and she told me that just down the end of her pretty little street, a large piece of rock had fallen and taken out the foot path that takes you down the back side of the hill that is Salobreña. Needless to say I rushed right over and took the following photos, I then went down below and took another photo for a better perspective on the size of the rock.
The culprit here was the roots of the Nicotina plant as shown in the next photo. The roots enter a fissure in the rocks and then continue to grow and spread, splitting the rock in the process.
On another note, I joined the walkers from the International Club as led by Diana for a return trip to the mountains just outside Nigüelas yesterday. It was a completely different experience this time around, as the weather was much colder, and the clouds started to envelop the mountains and trail making for some spectacular sights.
