Camino de Santiago 2016

Every single one of us possesses the strength to attempt something he isn't sure he can accomplish. It can be running a mile, or a 10 k race, or 100 miles. It can be changing a career, losing 5 lbs., or telling someone you love her (or him).
-- Scott Jurek

Old age is the time to be dangerous. Dangerously fun loving, dangerously alive . . . This is the time to do every single thing we can possibly do with all the life we can bring to it. This is the time to live with an edge, with strength, with abandon. There is nothing for which to save our energy. Now it is simply time to spend time well.
-- Joan Chittister

Day 4 Pamplona to Puente la Reina

Today's walk from Pamplona, up and over Alta del Perdon was gorgeous. As the mountain came into view, it was covered with fog. In some ways, better not to see what was coming up. 

This area of Spain reminds me of the Palouse of Eastern Washington/Northern Idaho: rolling hills of wheat, oats, canola and peas. 



As I got to the top, the fog lifted. 



The windmills at the top supply much of the power for Pamplona. 


Puente del Reina was built in the 11th century to help pilgrims avoid high ferry prices, and robbers.The town grew up around the bridge to support pilgrims.
