Was told today would be a difficult day. About a 400 meter climb over a period of 2 hours, and then a steep descent. I supposed that the whole trip will be like this due to the mountainous region.
Well....it was pretty difficult. There are about 2 blisters on each foot. Probably from all the steep downward slopes. There were so many!
Just before leaving Pamplona, there was a memorial march for Saint Maria.
I knew that were leaving the city when it didn't see of these
After Pamplona, there were only the stone signs.
The weather and view were fantastic today. There was no rain and lots of sun.
The mountains in the background was where I was goin after leaving Pamplona...until I finally reached it.
I made it!!
Then it was time to go down the mountain...
On the way up the mountain, I was able to visit a small church. Even in a small town and being a small church, it was so beautiful on the inside. Also, I was able to get my passport stamped.
Here are some pictures of the view on the way from Pamplona to Puenta La Riena:
After I did my laundry and took my shower, it was time to tour the town. I was able to look at a couple of churches on town (no stamps though)
The first one is used by the monks...it's so simple and beautiful.
