Almost at the highest point on the Camino

After today's 16 mile uphill walk, I sketched the structure across the street from our Albergue in the tiny mostly abandoned town of Foncebadón Spain. It is near the highest point of our journey where there is La Cruz de Ferro. It is a pilgrim tradition to bring a rock from home to lay at the base of this iron cross. I have carried two rocks from the beach near my home in Maine that I will leave there tomorrow morning as we go over the pass.

My pack will still be heavy even without these two rocks...
