Today was just a beautiful day for walking. The weather was great and the views were fantastic.
Today I started as usual at around 6:30. As I walked out the door I realized that it was snowing. Not just a little but really coming down.
At the albergue
The above picture was taken at the top of the mountain. It snowed so hard on the way up that I could barely see the trail let alone find the trail markers.
This is looking back at my way down the trail. It took me 3 hours to walk the 8k or 4.8 miles to the top. Crazy.
Tonight I am staying at Santiago apostle albergue. A nice place with lots of people that have been traveling with me from the beginning. You see each other at night in the albergue and then maybe on the road.
Still having fun. My body is slowly starting to adjust.
After an interesting nights sleep I was out and walking this morning by 6:30. The first hour or so was by headlamp.
Note to self Zubrini’s church is like grandma Madelons clock it sounds the time in bells 24 hours a day, and on the half hour just one bell. Beautiful but annoying.
Today I started walking with my camino friend Tim. We have walked together the last three days. About 3 hours into our walk he turned on the afterburners and was gone. Buen Camino Tim. I stopped for breakfast in this tiny mountain town. So cool they had a wood burning oven going and were making tortilla. Tortilla in Spain is an omelet with thinly sliced potatoes onions and egg. The then take this mixture out of the oven and put slices of bacon in between two pieces and serve it sandwich style in hot bread from the oven. A few cups of cafe con leche later I was back on the trail.
My knee still hurts today but I can still walk and so I am working through it.
I was going to stop in Pamplona today and had decided to stay in a hotel if I found one. Well I did not find on so I kept walking to Cizur Minor. Today’s distance is 27.6k. All in all a good day but I am looking forward to my body adjusting and hoping it will stop aching so much. I got to Cizur Minor at about 2:00pm today. 7.5 hours. Nice.
After a nice hot shower, cleaned the mud that was caked on my boots off and no a little wifi time.
