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.

Day 12 Villafranca Montes de Oca to Atapuerca

It was another misty morning as I headed up the Oca Mountains. This area was a danger for midevil pilgrims because robbers would attack them from the woods. 
As I neared the top, the clouds broke and it was another beautiful day. 
This country is far different than the rolling wheat fields. 

I'm staying in an ancient hotel which has had little renovation. The wood stairs have deep grooves in them from centuries of footsteps.
