We started our walk three days ago in Astorga and have had beautiful sunshine every day so far, and even though it is very cold in the morning it gets nice and warm in the day, about 12-15 degrees. The camino is very wet in places but there is no longer snow on the path, we have only seen small patches. The descent into Acebo seems looser and rockier than I remembered it, but no mud or ice. Take care walking it though. From Acebo to Molinaseca was steep as usual, but dry and in good condition. Very few pilgrims though, it's like being on your own in the mountains! Also albergue Pilar in Rabanal is *not* open, nor are the bottom two or Gaucelmo. We stayed in Hostal Refugio. At least one open in foncebadon.
