I remember walking down this hill as if it were yesterday. I agree with Clearskies, I could walk the Camino forever. My return trip to Spain had to be cancelled for this year but I will be back on the Norte in 2016.
This summer I went to the fourth Camino, every walk of about 300km, but I have not been in Santiago .... a little consciously, subconsciously little - I do not want to trail ends.
Meseta is something special.
This is more or less a perfect day's walk: Starting from Castrojeritz early in the morning by climbing up a steep hill (callled very appropriate "The Mule Killer.."), then a little flat before going downhill, as the picture shows. then, at the end of picture. a man has an outdoor stand where he serves coffee and fruits for a donativo, with benches and tables. A perfect resting place.
My wife and I Been wanting 2 do the Camino for 3 years now. With 4 kids can be a difficult task.
Something always comes up and delays or hold our trip.
Just hope GODs willing to offer us this opportunity in the near future.
