Roncesvalles to Zubiri
This day was walking, all day. Twelve hours of walking.
Much too ambitious a day for me. I was ready to call it quits at about 3 pm, but James wanted to continue, so we did. The last descent was steep, over shale and rock that was slippery and super dangerous. I only hoped to get to Zubiri by nightfall, and we did, around 9 pm. An amazing number of steps for me. I usually only walk around 5,000 steps on an average day.
Steps Today: 49,806

One thought on “Walking the Walk”
What an amazing experience you & James are having! I am loving the photos and picturing your wonderful challenging, life-expanding days.
My Uncle was a Benedictine monk whose home monastery was a lovely fratteria (in Indiana!?) where the monks were totally self-sufficient – beautiful church, lovely vineyards, farming, bakery, classrooms, science labs, etc. He had several Ph.D.’s, taught for a time in Germany & ended life at a mission in Peru. Back in the day when saints still walked among us.
