Scenic route down to Tricastella

After the long and scenic walk yesterday, today our plan was to simply hike down the mountain and keep the day short and sweet. There was forecast for more rain and everyone was in the mood for a short day.

We decided to sleep in an extra hour and leave around 8. It was raining when we got up so we decided to have the breakfast at the Albergue and left at 8:30 with slight rain.

Team was excited at the prospect of a short and beautiful day. We thought we may have to walk on the road due to the rain, but the trail looked nice and beautiful.

Rain was intermittent and turned in to mist. Every one was enjoying the panoramic view of the valley.

We are all settled in for the night in Tricastella. Tomorrow we head past Saria to Barbedelo which means by end of tomorrow, God willing, we will be less than 100 km (60 miles) from Santiago.

    You all look so victorious holding hands at the top of the hill! But for some reason, Noah is not included in the victory party. What gives? =)

    I can tell you’re starting to realize that, yes, it’s true…you’re almost there. But at the same time, it hits you…it’s almost over. It’s a bittersweet feeling.
