Arzua to Lavacolla

Day Seventy Six. 17.8 Miles, 27.3 Kilometers.

Written on July 4, 2012.

Santiago de Compostela is a two day walk for most people. There are a few, however, who are walking the full 26 miles today. Vern and I have decided to walk to Lavacolla today, the rest of the way tomorrow.

At the first break we saw several people we know. There are mixed emotions about arriving in Santiago but most people seem to be excited.

On the way to Lavacolla I saw something I haven't seen since the last time I was in Colorado…..dark red earth. I had to take this photo of red earth and clear water!

We recognized a pilgrim walking toward us…the same question…are you coming from Santiago? He was excited and anxious to show us his Compostela and three credentials. He had started in Le Puy in May.
