Camino de Santiago, Pt 2

In the first blog post, I talked about the importance of the people I met during the Camino walk but closely behind that were the amazing sights that I saw when walking for 5 weeks. For several reasons (people waking up in the dorm at 0530 was one!), I was up and walking almost every morning by 0630. While not my normal modus operandi, it did allow for some spectacular sunrises and misty mornings.

There were a lot of beautiful sunrises but we also experienced some nice sunsets!

Not only did we have great sunrises and sunsets, we had a lot of beautiful flowers as we were right in the middle of Spring!

Some orange and green plants on the Camino (don’t know what they were, like the colors!)

Lastly the Camino trail itself was beautiful, especially when you could see it stretch off to the horizon.

Well, that’s a wrap for this second blog post on the Camino. Next week I’ll do a final blog post on my adventures walking the Camino. It will be more of a catch-all  of different items experienced that didn’t fit in the first two blog posts. Thanks for stopping by!!

    Breathtaking photos of the Camino. Reminds me of my walk that was a few weeks earlier. Didn’t think it could be more beautiful but the blooming landscape gives it a new perspective. Especially love the field of poppies. I have fond memories of a field of them near my house in Aravaca.
