My Camino Route in 2016

My Camino Route in 2016
This year, I will be walking Camino Madrid from El Escorial through Segovia and Valladolid to Sahagun. I will have a few more days of walking and am currently thinking I might then walk from Astorga to Zamora on the portion of the Via de la Plata that I did not walk in 2014. In all it w=should be about 18 days and somewhere between 250 and 300 miles of walking.

Mondeñado 28 September

I decided to walk a little longer than normal today, about 18 miles. While much of the terrain today was up and down (very little of Spain seems to be flat), tomorrow's walk will be really steep up in comparison, so I have a walk of 10 miles planned for then.

It rained hard last night, but I was lucky and there was not so much as a sprinkle until after I arrived at the albergue today. Of course, it rained after I hung up my clothes, so they are now hanging by my bed. Much of the walk today was through farmed forests of eucalyptus and the moisture made everything smell good. I walked most of the without seeing any other walkers.
