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.

Vilalba 29 September

Originally I planned a short walking day of ten miles to the next albergue as that walk was almost all steep uphill, an elevation gain of about 1600 feet. Starting at 7:30, I arrived at the albergue in Gonton at 11 am, but it was closed and would not open until 1 pm. So I decided to keep walking until the next albergue in Vilala. The rest of the walk was some up and down, but not too bad. Since this is Sunday, most restaurants and all grocery stores are closed. It was a sparsely populated section, anyway, so no place to stop. Even here on the outskirts of Vilalba, nothing is open, so will rely on my cache of grocery store food today and tonight. Total mileage today was 21 miles.

A wooded path on today's walk- many times these are sunken 10 or more feet below the land, sometimes with stone walls, as if they have been used for hundreds of years, which they probably have been.
