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 24 Rabanal del Camino to Molinaseca

It was a tough day both for the hike and the weather. It was cold as headed up the Irago Mountains to the highest point on the Camino. 
Soon it began raining and wind and fog set in. 
I missed seeing some beautiful views. Still the trail was covered in heather and wildflowers. 
Cruz Ferro where pilgrims over the centuries have placed a mountain of stones and other mementoes - laying down their burdens. 
After 7 hours non-stop, finally got below the fog to my home for the night. 
Puente de la peregrinos. Roman 12th century origin. 
Molinaseca is a quaint little village. Quite charming.
