One day on the NorteJune 28 in Spain ⋅ ⛅ 68 °F
While most of Europe, and the rest of Spain, are sweltering under a deadly heat wave, were still enjoying sunny skies and temperatures in the low 60s to mid 70s. Apparently the mountains we’ve been skirting for many days are holding back the heat wave.

Fans of the Camino like to say, “The Camino provides,” meaning that what a pilgrim needs (not wants!) will somehow appear. It’s become kind of a joke. But sometimes it seems to be true. This morning, as we came to a yellow arrow showing a turn off our road, an older lady appeared and motioned for us to go a different way. That way would be much shorter, less climbing, go through that overpass, turn right, follow the signs... all of which turned out to be a great trail, past an old church and cemetery.
Here are some pics that will show you what our day was like —Read more
