Thanks for sharing this sil. As someone who walked this route leaving mid-April, I have found it fascinating to see photos of the summer landscapes.
I have already had one big laugh though. It seemed when we walked in France, that various distance markers on the Le Puy route never agreed with one another. I took a photo when I left Le Puy, and it said the distance to Santiago was 1521km. http://chemincamino08.blogspot.com/2008/07/14-april.html
This more recent sign says it is 1698km. Quite a major difference!!!! http://beautywelove.wordpress.com/2008/08/08/le-puy-to-tallode-8-kilometers-5-miles/#comment-70

I found this discrepancy interesting, as it felt to me when I reached Santiago that I had walked further in France than in Spain, though from the written info I had, SJPP was at around the half-way point. Maybe in fact I had passed the half-way point before I reached SJPP... or perhaps a different distance sign will appear at the edge of Le Puy next year!!

Thanks for sharing this Sil I'm really enjoying this taste of the Le Puy route. I plan to walk the Le Puy and the Camino del Norte in 2010, early March to mid May. These beautiful photos have made me wish I could do it this year. :p

I hope you are reading Maggie's blog as well - she walked from Mid-April - a bit closer to the time you want to walk. It can be cold in the high places so plan on taking thermals!

Thanks Sil, yes I've book marked her blog to enjoy too. I'm not sure if this is Margret's YouTube slide show or not but it is a very enjoyable video of the Le Puy route:

I walked the Frances this past April and May and it was cold in Navarre, some mornings there was frost on car windshields. My only regret was not bringing a wool hat to pull down over my ears. I will make sure I have warm cloths the next time. :mrgreen:
