    Hi

    Just spending a few days here walking and driving.

    I was last here in my Jeep Cherokee XJ 7 or 8 years ago, and I did plan on driving some of the routes again.

    Unfortunately, a couple have been closed off, and the third one was blocked by snow!!!

    A few photos attached of the snow blocked route, and one of the sign stopping me from driving the others.

    Took the southern route out of Potes and went drove over the passes in snow.

    Next day in Galicia, plenty of sunshine.

    Saw a modded KJ, a member of the Galicia offroad club. Unfortunately, my Spanish was not good enough to say hello. Must remember to make and bring some Jeep KJ country calling cards next time.

    I think you are lucky for travel to Spain with your KJ. Must be a great experience.

    Excuse my English, I´m here for learn and practice it (I´m studing it now).

    The white out on the Asturian border / pass was about 1500m.

    We encountered snow at approx 1200m and above.

    The tarmac roads were cleared through use (and snow plough). The dirt roads just wait for the snow to melt (probably in June).
