The Sau swamp disappears into the mist

This morning, from the Cingles de Tavertet, we have seen (or rather, not seen) the Sau reservoir full of fog (and empty of water due to the drought), as can be seen in The Photos of the Readers of La Vanguardia.

In some areas these seas of fog are also known as “baixa joke”. Basically, it's when the fog comes down and covers everything. It must be borne in mind that the Osona region is the place in Spain with the most foggy days, around a hundred a year.

La Plana de Vic is an elongated depression in a north-south direction that constitutes the central nucleus of the region. When the cold air from the higher parts descends and stagnates in this sunken (flat) plain, the water vapor condenses into microscopic droplets. This is how a sea of ​​fog is produced that is a characteristic part of the landscape.

Tavertet is located in the Collsacabra area and, from the chasms that surround the town, there are excellent views of the Sau and Susqueda valleys as long as they are not covered by fog, as happened this morning.

Collsacabra is an authentic mid-mountain paradise for hikers, with infinite landscape options, with streams, waterfalls, magical corners and medieval towns.

Tavertet is located within the Guilleries area. El Morro de l'Abella, for example, is a viewpoint with fantastic views of the Sau reservoir, which is located a few kilometers before reaching the town of Tavertet.

Below, from this privileged view from the viewpoint, we will see the reservoir and, in front, we will have the Puig de la Força and, to our right, the Salt de Tirabous.
