Trips in the general area of Granada

Recently we had extra time on a rental car. One day we took a trip on the back roads of Granada to Guadix. We never made it. There were too many things to see. The first 8 pictures are from this adventure. The next day we took some friends, Kay and Boyce, and drove an hour or so north of Granada to Baeza and Canena. Pictures 9 thru 13 are from this drive. The remaining pictures are from a school trip to Baza where we toured an excavation site of a Roman city. Tom is trying to arrange a time to go and help out with the excavation. He wants to go and dig for several days. More later.
