Gorge of the Gaitanes

El Chorro, or “the spurt”, lies an hour outside of Malaga, southern Spain.  Once a destination for 20th century miners, turned into a haven for adrenaline-seeking hikers.  What was once the miner’s footpath, the “Caminito del Rey,” became a decrepit series of railed walkways, leading to several deaths and the trail’s full closure. The boardwalk has been completed renovated as of 2015, so the fainter-hearted hiker like myself is now able to experience the beauty of the gorge.
