To Roncesvalles

It just about killed me. 29 km, all of it up except about 6 km. And down wasn't exactly a picnic. But the scenery was "to die for". The mountains reminded me of the Great Glen in Scotland. Sheep and horses and cattle dotted the hillsides and always one of the group had a bell on, so the air was always filled with the sound of bells. In my life I will never forget this day

  3. Buen Camino Beverly, Buen Camino. You never cease to amaze me the way your strength prevails. You are now, as you were before, the quiet strong soldier. 29 klicks your first day in country is admirable. Your quiet strength is even more so. Even from your great distance, you are touching and shaping many lives back in Kentucky.
