06/20 – Belorado to San Juan 24.3km

Day 14 – tough day 24.5km (15.1 miles) of  steep up and down terrain (Campbell Stadium on steroids).

We arrived in San Juan (population 50), at our Albergue (hostel) after a 7 hour trek.  The cost is 5 euros a night.  It is old with a 16th century courtyard.  I must admit the creature comforts equal my 2 day local hospital stay earlier this year. They charged my insurance $10,000 per day.  Wow!

Today I walked for Jessica (tough hills, beautiful countryside with lots of butterflies).

Now the day ends with rain; cooling off the day,

Next week we will be half way.  The only way to our goal is to keep putting one step in front of the other.

327 miles to Santiago.
