Another week has passed and I’m closer to the beginning of my second Camino.
Another week has passed and I am still wondering if the training I have done will be sufficient enough to carry me the distance I must walk to arrive at the cathedral of Saint James (Santiago) and then onward to the end of the earth, Finisterre and Muxia.
I expect to be walking a total of 468 miles or 747 kilometers. I’m hoping to accomplish this in 43 days allowing for several rest days along the Way.
Training here in the desert during the summer months is quite challenging. Everything is parched and/or dried up.
Above is a picture of one of the many arroyos or washes I pass during my daily training. I have never seen any water in any of these washes around town, but then again I am usually out in the early morning and the monsoon rains generally happen during the late afternoon or early evenings.
This is another shot taken during one of my training hikes this week. The only wildlife I encountered this past week were cotton tail rabbits, lizards and a multitude of birds, large and small.
