My Camino Route in 2017

My Camino Route in 2017
This year (2017), I will be walking most of the Camino Levante from Albacete to Zamora I've alloted three weeks in September and October, but may have time at the end for more walking.

Laza 5 October

No accommodations in between, so I had to walk 35 km or 21 miles today. And it was spectacular scenery as I continue to walk up and down these mountains. It was only about 300 m  (900 ft) elevation gain today, but about 1000 m (3000 ft) elevation drop which sounds good, but the steep drop is harder on the feet and the knees. My feet are sore, tomorrow I will walk 23 km, but there is a 500 m elevation gain, followed by 300 m drop. I will let the photos show the rest of the story for today's walk.

It was very foggy and cool starting out this morning

Good thing Kathy was not driving this narrow mountain road with no guardrail. That is the construction of the Galician high speed rail in the distance.


More mountains


Even so most of the walk was on on two lane roads, I don't think more than five cars passed by in the last five hours of walking.
