Last look at Las Herrerias at dawn. Today's 14 miles included 3300' of elevation gain so at first light I was off.
In the first section to La Faba, the Camino was muddy and torn up by tractors and horses. It is really just a farm trail.
In La Faba I caught first sun highlighting its small church.
The trail continued to wind upwards.
Finally the trail opened up and the views were spectacular.
Just above O'Cebriero, looking to the north.
Finally the high point of the day. A modern sculpture of a pilgrim.
As I headed down, the views continued.
The churches in this area are small and quite modest. Still, the slate roofs.
