We started early because we knew we had “the steepest climb of the pilgrimage” (source: our guide book) ahead of us, followed by another seven miles of smaller ups and downs.
Once the sun rose, things seemed relatively tame.
Pretty soon, we got pretty high..
…even though it rained most of the day and the temps were in the 50’s (actually good walking weather). The good news about the rain is I now know how to put my new poncho on without assistance from a waitress.
But…believe it or not, we still went up…
All in all, a challenging day.
Today we celebrate the completion of four weeks on the Camino. Only eight more days left. It has been, and continues to be, an incredible experience.
Blessings to all.
