Chirivel Hash

Chirivel is a rural town, in the province of Almeria, close to the border with Granada. It was a little chilly as we formed a circle in the car park. The leaves on the trees changing colour from greens to yellow, red and brown a sign of  autumn. The hare had marked the trail for the runners with highlighter pink, so there was no excuse. The walkers were following “Click it” and Alf, so we set off.

We arrived at a local activity park, we were encouraged to have a go, some chirivelhashhashers were more enthusiastic than others.

By the park there was this dead tree trunk, some very skilled  wood carving, I suppose some may have said vandalism.chirivelhash3

We wandered through the town, then into the outskirts, before heading back through a river bed, with water channelled to the side. The dogs loved running through chirivelhash4the refreshing water.

Puff’s 150th Hash!

“Puff the Magic Dragon” is an active member of the Indalo Hash House Harriers, he is very popular, so to mark his 150th hash at Almanzora there was much revelry to celebrate. As we almanzorahash9formed a circle at the old railway station,  there were over 40 participants to listen to the hares for the “chalk talk”, with special mention of Puff’s 150th and a balloon!

We set off through the town, we were soon out into the orange and lemon trees of the almanzorahash7campo.

We headed towards the river bed. With stunning views of the surrounding countryside. The almanzorahash2runners were spotted high on a ridge above.

If you look closely to the image of the cliffs, it is possible to see a car wedged in a crevice.

 

 

As we headed back to the station the dogs enjoyed a dip in the acequia.almanzorahash0

 

 

 

 

The runners were already back when the walkers arrived, the circle was followed by snacks and more beer.

Albox Hash

We travelled past Albox and met up at the Guarducha bar for a second Hash in this area.

It had rained quite heavily last night, which concerned  the hares, alboxhash121014fortunately the trail had been set in paint spots in bright green for the runners and “GPO” green for the walkers.

We set off, it was cloudy but warm, there were quite a few alboxhash2121014dogs.

The hare apparently needed supervising with the trail even though she had completed the route the day before.

The vista opened up and the views were beautiful.

After just over an hour we were heading back towards the bar, for the circle and the beer and crisps.

 

 

Another great Hash.alboxhash7121014
