The Camino Blog – Villafranca de M de Oca to San Juan De Ortega to Atapuerca (Day 9)

“Clear mornings bring the mountains to my door-step. Calm nights give the rivers their say. Some evenings the wind puts its hand on my shoulders. I stop thinking. I leave what I’m doing And I go the soul’s way.” John Moriarty

In the morning mists we climbed seemingly forever uphill through silent oak woods, the only sound, the rhythm of our footfall on the forest floor, then level paths mysteriously appearing, disappearing, leading us on, each in quiet contemplation.
