25 k, 9 hours, 44,000 steps
We left St Jean Pied de Port about 7 am, crossing the historic river Nive along with many others. The camino office indicated to use just over 200 people were registered to start the Camino here. April is not the busiest if months, but the weather, at least today, is suitable for the long walk. The forecast for the next few days is more great weather.
This stage of the camino is reported to be one of the hardest, and I can honestly say we were exhausted by the end if the day, and we are looking forward to tomorrow’s walk.
