In a clear day in Sierra Nevada, Spain, enjoying the recent snow, I noticed something rising over the horizon.
A very iconic mountain, La Sagra, was looking at us from 120 kilometers away. It is an isolated mountain with more than 2.ooo meters and a clear view over the rest of the area. Really a good sighting and also a visit worth it!

Ulrich Deuschle has a simulation of this view here:

Here are some pictures from a previous trekking on December 2015 to La Sagra peak, showing its isolation:

On the last meters to the summit, still on the dark side. Cold and windy day.

After coming back, on the intense sun of midday, the situation is much better
