The waterfalls in Ordesa are in full flow at the moment with the warm early summer weather melting the snow from the peaks above. You pass a series of fantastic waterfalls as you walk along the valley floor with my favourites being the Casacada del Estrecho and the Grados de Soasa.
The woods are also very pretty at the moment with the bright green new leaves of the birch trees contrasting with the darker green needles of the evergreen pines and silver fir.
Today was just a short stroll in the valley with friends and we followed thepath along the valley floor alongside the Rio Arazas. The water is always beautifully clear. You can find stone fly larvae in many of the rockpools which is a sure sign of clean, pure water.
It was our daughter Isabels first trip to Ordesa – at 6 months old I think she was the youngest hiker in the valley that day!
