May 28: hike from En to Ardez

The denouement of the day's adventuring.

This is the righthand anchor...

...for the footbridge I was about to cross the En on, the Punt Veidra.

The full anchor assembly.

The full bridge. I wonder what that sign at left says. I wonder if I even noticed it when I was there. (Edit: well, obviously it's a warning sign — a big red-and-white triangle is easily visible on it. Inside the triangle appears perhaps to be a stick figure falling toward a watery demise.)

The roiling En.

Almost there! What a cool minimal structure.

Thanks, bridge. Thidge.

The rest of the route was a cakewalk. Just 170m or so to climb in one kilometer's horizontal distance.

Hey look up there, it's the buscatcher! Must be getting close.

Hovering highway.

The day had been more in than out (or is it the opposite) for a while and only snippets of sun were to be had.

"Where should the bench go?" "I dunno, just toss it by the rocks or something." "How's this?" "Eh, close enough."

7602

One more bridge to cross.

7605

A good spot to take shelter during such as an earthquake or a torrential rain.

The highway's placement here is quite impressive.

Oh wow is it ever good to see mystery outskirts church!

A straight-up flower riot.

Chastè Steinsberg coming into view.

Hmm, it appears I may have gotten back just in time and not only because of the train schedule.
