A journey across the Serra da Estrela in the early evening. We started by finding Cabeca da Velha off of M513. A very step climb for the car up an unpaved road to find a totally destroyed building with trees growing inside. There was also the 'smiling man' waiting there for us.
From there it was a continuing climb up to the highest point where snow was still laying in shady places with melt water pools nearby. They were an unexpected but immediate target for action, despite the chillness. Only 8c outdoors and the pools were decidedly colder (not much above freezing)
