In another field trip, students hiked through the mountains of Lorca (Murcia) climbing Pericay Ridge and then descending to the Luchena river. After refreshing themselves in the cool clear waters of the Luchena, they traversed the spectacular canyon that leads to the Valdeinfierno dam, which marked the end of the outing.
