Featured Photo: Trail View on Montserrat (Barcelona, Spain)


As we hiked up the “saw-toothed mountain” Montserrat near Barcelona, Spain, a backward glance revealed this view. The significance of this small building wasn’t immediately clear, but the trail eventually took us through cliff hugging hermitages (rock cavities that served as homes for solitary monks) and up a steep climb to a spectacular mountaintop view. Home to a Benedictine monastery founded in 1025, Montserrat was an easy one-hour train ride from the city and a highlight of our trip to Barcelona.

It followed us everywhere like an eager bystander insistent on inserting himself into every group photo. Peeping through golden leaved trees, stretching skyward behind palatial edifices and statuary, hovering on the horizon like a painted backdrop that could be rolled out at will.

Arriving in Paris I had anticipated finding the Eiffel Tower after a long walk, not realizing that, instead, it would often simply stand grandly in the distance waiting for me to turn my head its way.
