Rabanal to Ponferrada— in two parts

Rabanal to Ponferrada, Part 1: This post is mostly photos. It was a good day for most of it (and emotional finally reaching Ferro). The climb up wasn't as bad as I anticipated... but boy was the climb down surprisingly challenging! The most difficult descent I've faced, and I'm not off the mountain yet! (Spent...

Cruz de Ferro

This was an important and emotional moment. I'm not going to explain too much in this post, so here is a page with a quick backstory (I can't find the wiki page in English, so you will have to use google translate if you do not read Spanish). Ferro de Cruz also marks the highest... Continue Reading →

To Rabanal del Camino

It's morning now and I have a full day of mountain climbing ahead of me. I'm in a place with two shared bathrooms, but I'm letting all of the other pilgrims go first -- I'm slow going up these steep inclines so best to let the others get their early start and run out the... Continue Reading →

To Astorga

I really debated what to write tonight. I'm going to be very honest with all of you back home: I am getting really burned out. I'm ready for this to be over and to go home, but I still have about 13 days of walking left. I think I'm just tired... despite the fact that... Continue Reading →

I’m in the Hospital

Oh, so sorry, didn't mean to panic everyone. I mean I am in a village called Hospital de Orbigo (or as the autocorrect on my phone likes to call it, "Hospital of Vegas"). The name comes from the fact that the village was founded in the 12th s by the Knights Hospitaller of St. John... Continue Reading →

Walkathon Update! $4,312

Steps to Support SCLS link is here. Hi friends-- man, what a difference a week makes! Last Monday I was struggling in high-80s heat, heat rash, new heat blisters, and four layers of hippy drippy sunblock that failed me. My skin didn't burn -- it literally bubbled. Today (Monday) it is in the low-30s with... Continue Reading →
