The story is actually quite simple, two good friends traveling to a foreign land to experience its people and culture and challenge ourselves to the sport of mountain Ibex hunting. The Ibex is an indigenous species of Spain and well sought after by mountain hunting enthusiasts. The people of Spain are wonderful hosts while their country is truly beautiful to behold. The charm of its tiny mountain villages appear to be stuck in time and well worth the visit.
However, in spite of the amenities afforded by our guide and his country, the Ibex lives with relative ease in hills that will test the best of human intentions. Preparation in both body and mind is an an integral part of the game and an added bonus if you succeed. There is a satisfaction that only comes from seeing the landscape from a few thousand feet up and as odd as it may sound; I feel more grounded there.
