Early Starts

It is good to get an early start each day, especially during a current heat wave, when the temp gets to 90 by noon. And so we leave by six or a little earlier, when it is still dark here,

As with so much else on this trek, it a blessing in disguise to leave before dawn. To hear the rising of the dawn chorus of birds, to watch the landscape appear in its beauty, to feel part of the re-awakening of the world.

For example, on our way yesterday from Atapuerca to Burgos , we were treated to the moon setting…

and the sun rising...

And then, shortly after, as we finished the day’s opening tough climb, a surprise at the top. Notice the sneakers hanging… an extra touch of the human, yes?

Sending love
