To Aldeanueva del Camino

We continue to move north. Today I will write less and post more pictures. A great day.

Weather: Low 40F High 72F
Distance: About 27 km, but it actually seemed like less.
Route Hints: About 12 km after Arco de Caparra the Camino meets the motorway. A bit later you have a choice of turning right for about 0.5 km on a nice grassy path to reach a Via Pecuaria. This is what I did, and it was beautiful. The other folks all stayed on the asphalt, and they say it was ugly.
Albergue: La Casa de mi Abuela is really nice. 15E with breakfast, and the stores seem to be closed for a 3 day holiday.

A beautiful morning.
These looked like they might be bronze painted black. An eye catching ranch entrance.
On Sunday we'll walk over a pass to the left of the snow capped mountain.
Caught this stork leaving the nest.
Lots of beehives in this country, but very few close enough for a picture
We walked through the very symbol of the Via de la Plata, the Arco de Caparra. 
Nice new water crossing, with one of the granite blocks already eroded downstream

  1. I am fascinated by the square block water crossings....
