June 19, 2016: Isar to Castrojeriz

image
A wind farm in the distance.  I can’t help but think  of Don Quijote when I see these, with the wind turbines standing in for the windmills.
image
Poppies, rocks, and Camino signs.  All ever-present here in northern Spain.
image
Occasional crosses mark the journey. It is not always clear what they represent, or why they appear where they do.
image
As the wind-power generators get closer, I wonder  how even a cracked brain like Don Quijote could possibly contemplate jousting against these  monsters, with their arms so high off  the ground.
image
Hermitages appear along the route.
image
Sometimes the hermitages have  a sign identifying which saint lived there, sometimes not.  This one did.  St. Brigida  made her home  here.
image
Angel’s ruined church.

And another view of the ruined church next to Angel’s house.
