... breathing heavily from the heat and the labor. My foot pulsed with pain, my shoulders ached, and the water I had to drink was about 90 degrees. Despite this, it was beautiful and perfect. I hope that I can remember this feeling next time I face a challenge. Really, this climb was representative of this entire trip.

... can no longer put one foot after the other, you open a Gite or volunteer to run one for the confraternity. My one disappointment is that it has not been quite as religious as the Via Frances, I actually miss the opportunity to attend mass. Needless to say Liz and I are planning the next one.
