Dad Tracker 3.0

My Dad is still walking across Northern Spain, and texting me daily. I'm making a new post, rather than 'bumping' the old one, because bumping the post is just awkward. And also, he's found out how to send me pictures from his phone, and I've found out how to forward them to my email. For his journey from St. Jean Pied-de-Port, France, on 20th May, to León on 14th June, now with added pictures, see Dad Tracker 2.0.

Montes de León, 18th June16th June: 31k today. 3k to Astorga, then over the mountains at west edge of meseta. Blister on little toe, but surviving.
17th June: Good day, lovely scenery and weather, looking forward to climb to highest point tomorrow, 1500m, less to descend.
18th June: Molinaseca, 8k from Ponferrada. Wonderful weather and mountain scenery, difficult descents. Picture: Montes de Leon (left).
19th June: Long, hot day. 30k to Villafranca, should reach Galicia tomorrow, feet permitting. Long, hard climb.

Wonderful! Oh what I miss when I go underground for far too long. I'm enjoying all the pleasure and regret of catching up, though.

Much love - V
