We're joining the growing number of pilgrims walking along these glorious paths. We started our 'there and back again' camino at the end of the Arles route and we're heading towards the Aragones in a few days. We've so far had a gloriously sunny day and a gloriously grey day too... but regardless of the weather the views have been perfect!

Here are a few photos... there are lots more on my blog : https://thenwewalked.blog/2021/07/11/chocolate/

Absolutely beautiful. Thank you for sharing 👍

BTW be prepared that the landscape will change significantly once you cross the Pyrenees and continue on the Camino Aragones. Unless things have changed significantly in the last year there is also rather far between the water posts so getting and especially adninistrating the water (and food) may take some planning and foresight. Just my experience and advice though. Bon Camino!

Especially after Jaca, where you are into meseta landscape. Try to make time to do side trips if you can to the monasteries of San Juan de la Peña and Leyre and Lumbier gorge. The tourist office will explain how to get to them. Great photos, by the way.

I hadn’t heard of Leyre so I’ll add that to the list... thank you

Really enjoying your posts @LesBrass !
Thank you for taking the time to share them here.
Will you go as far as Jaca and San Juan de la Pena? May you have fair weather and more glorious days!

yes we hope so... we will go back to Urdos in a couple of days when the weather is better and walk to Somport and also from Somport to Canfranc... but we hope to keep going all the way to puente la Reina. We won’t have time to walk every step but we’ve chosen the best of the stages, following the recommendations from the experts on here. Today I’m planning on moving onwards towards Jaca 😊

Thankyou @LesBrass
What an absolutely ‘juicy batch’ of photos and descriptions on your posts.
I would love to be there - 🙃🙃 - just beautifully peaceful and inspiring ❤️🌸

buen camino to you and Gerry
Annie

Edit: I forgot to ask - how is the effect on your quads and calves ? Are there more gentle climbs & descents than what I see in the pics ?
looks so much tougher than the Sjpdp-Roncesvalles section of the CF.

I walked the Aragones from Oloron Ste Marie to Somport (Camino d'Arles) to Puenta la Reina, then on the Frances to Santiago, for my second camino. The walk up the Valee d'Aspe spreads out the climb over several days, and the final climb up to Somport is, in my opinion, much easier than the Napoleon. It is also much more solitary, which suited me just fine after the crowds on the Napoleon. And very beautiful. I shall go back one day.

Hi there... Just as @Albertagirl says its more gentle. I still think Hunto to Orisson is the steepest up 😂 because of Gerrys ankle we are avoiding lots of downs but generally what we've walked has been fine for me 😊

Just read your description for the day and WOW were you off course! 😂. There actually IS a path from the Leyre Monastery to Lumbier Gorge, much of what it sounds like you walked by accident. For future pilgrims, you can follow a path from Sanguesa to Lumbier through the Gorge and the Lumbier to Monreal for the next stage. Very enjoyable

Actually, your photos would make a glorious book. When I was young I came across a one liner I have always recalled as by Ezra Pound: you'll not get Him all in a book. Maybe I made it up, that he was the author. I was fond of one liners. That was the height of my exposure to a lot of literature!
Anyway, my real point is: you have material for an exquisite Camino journey to delight actual and armchair pilgrims.

Thank you Pilgrims... I'm so glad that you enjoyed the photos and our COVID camino... we reached the end today at Eunate (@mspath I thought of you)... it seemed the right place to end.

I didn't take so many photos today... but a few more as always in the blog : https://thenwewalked.blog/2021/07/23/the-pandemic-made-us-do-it/

@kirkie - after the Lebaniago last year I made a photo book and I love it. When Gerry's mum died we found so many old photos and it made us think about digital photos... they're great for sharing online but would they stand the test of time.. so I plan to make a photo book of each of my caminos... It might take me a while :)
