We woke up this morning to a quarter inch of powdered sugar over the top of the mountains and log piles. After breakfast we white washed door frames in the guest rooms as the snow began and continued to fall outside of the windows. After lunch we walked the perimeter of the cortijada becoming more and more snow blind with each step. At 3,000 feet the weather keeps us guessing.

Our host’s grandfather’s paintings of pre-civil war, rural Spain (circa early 1930s)
We’ve counted 5 wood stoves, a wood fired oven, 2 timber-fueled boilers (located in the aptly named boiler room) and of course the asador.
