Walk from Foncebadon to Molenaseca

April 11th, 2011 – 19.5 km today… appreciating the sun…

This was mostly a downhill day… down hill is much more challenging for the knees and ankles, so it is very important to go slow…

This small church, next to the cruce, is a place where spiritual awareness is heightened… and a place for quiet, contemplative, meditative moments…

Quite moment at the Cruce

This is the highest point on the Camino… a place where many pilgrims bring a stone from home and leave it with a wish for the the future… This place is highly spiritual and raises many thoughts and feelings as we are here… Pocoloco Paul and I have a special bond for this place…

This is the highest point on the Camino... & Cruce

I was particularly noticing the snow capped mountains in the distance… and thought of those pilgrims that have died in making their pirgrimage at a more challenging time during the year.

Gravesite near the highest point...

The directions for the way!

A stop on the way...

    Was worried you might get lost, but that stop on the way with all the signs reassured me! Head for the snow-capped mountains.

    How are your feet and knees holding out with all the downhill portions?
