Day one of our exploration of Majorca's mountains, The Serra de Tramuntana which lie in the north of the island and stretch from Andratx in the  SW to  Pollenca in theNE. We quickly took the wonderful wee train journey out of Palma and within an hour or so arrived at Soller, a differnet world away from the vast majority of sun worshipers on the beaches. Karen and I had an excellent first day traversing the whole ridge of the  Serra d'Alfabia. Fantastic limestone ridge with several tops along the route, scrambling on fantastic rough rock, ending in a beautiful descent back to Soller via a gorge ( Barranc). Beautiful orange groves at the end, mmmmm cool Sangria! It was blue skies all day, hot but with a nice breeze.
