Walked today: 7.9 miles
Walked Camino 2019: 15.2 miles
When we left SJPDP at 7:20 this morning it was cloudy and a cool 60 degrees.
We began the Camino Frances by passing through the Porte d’Espagne followed by an immediate test up a very steep road through a residential area even before we left the village!
The small, paved road became a more gradual ascent for the next mile or so as picturesque farmland surrounded us and we began a steep climb up into the Pyrennes Mountains.
We’ll chronicle our walk mostly with photos in an attempt to demonstrate what we experienced this morning.
We arrived at the Virge de Baikorri at 1:00 and soon after our taxi arrived and took us back to SJPDP to recoup and spend the night.
An incredible “hike” part-way up the Pyrennes.
