We continued on the trail through a tunnel of trees leading to a few large climbs. On one descent we got stuck behind a farmer moving his herd of cattle. The dirt road was so narrow that we couldn't pass, and we were forced to walk behind the cattle until they got into town (and we could sneak by). We didn't mind being part of the cattle-parade. It caused us to take in the scenery - and it was beautiful. The little clay-roofed houses nestled in the hills. Very pretty.
The trail wound around the town, and beside more fields, before it led us to red peak, a large red rock wall, hidden from the road. That was neat. We made our way back down the Fajazinha and home. It was such a fun run.
