Northern Spain is getting cooler than normal temperatures and much more rain. It reminds me of the Pacific Northwest - very green and many of the same crops: peas, wheat, canola, and miles of grapes.
On the walk from Pamplona to Puenta la Reina, we climbed to Alta del Perdon where I got to take my very own picture of the pilgrims' sculpture. Discarded items line the Camino from pilgrims who packed too much. Often there are boots discarded because they don't fit properly. In this photo some foot weary pilgrim gave the sculpture a new pair of boots.
Along the Camino are rest stops, signs and sculptures. This one invites pilgrims to walk through. The pilgrim doing so is Peaceful Warrior. Yes, that's his name.
I didn't stop in Puerta la Reina, except of course, to snap a picture of the iconic bridge.
