I enjoyed Astorga but happy to be headed further into Galecia. I started the climb up the Cantabrian Mountains. From here it will be a steady climb to the highest point of the Camino reached tomorrow.
Not much sun today. The rain held off but I wore the dreaded pilgrim's poncho to stay warm.
In these hills, the buildings are smaller and made of stone.
The small towns are little more than ghost towns kept going only by providing services to pilgrims.
And on up.
I found my home for the night was outside of town - more of a mountain lodge. Isolated and no cafe, but they had a beer for me!
