Circular route from Las Dehesas de Cercedilla to la Peña del Águila via el Puerto de la Fuenfría. Under normal conditions a moderate difficulty level, but in this occasion we encountered a snowy landscape from the very start, with on the Peña del Águila about 50 cm of fresh snow, which made the ascent quite difficult. Snow raquets would have made it a lot easier, but the view on a white Sierra and pieces of art formed by the vegetation covered by a thick layer of ice and snow compensated the pain. Descent through snow was fun!
