Cruz de Ferro - First Sight

About 8:30 am, after an early (ish) start from Foncebadon. No one else there.....
It was taken at 8:30 am on 27th April 2016. My dear wife's first day on the Camino. A 6:30 am start from Foncebadon with temp of about 2 C :eek: But it was a great day and she was hooked ;)
 
Thank you for the reply Robo. We walked by here about 6 weeks later than 27 April and the pole was filled with posters left by many Pilgrims. I have never seen it so clean of the posters in my three Caminos. Once again, I appreciate the response.....
 
Nice pic. When was this taken? I see that all the posters have been removed..... Thank you for sharing. Ed

Hola HalfDome - I agree about a great photo and the fact that the pole and general area had been cleaned up. In 2015 (Sept) it looked like a pig sty - much paper litter, half drunk wine bottles, underwear (male and female) and numerous other items draped around the pole. It was little better in May 2017.
