walked this section on October 9, 2019
Rain was forecast, however the morning was dry, overcast, and in the upper 50s. We walked up and through the red clay cliffs behind Nájera. The scenery was special all day. First we had vineyards and red clay. Then we had harvest fields and long views of the trail and the pilgrims ahead of us.
We arrived in Santo Domingo in a cloudy drizzle, colder than most of our days, uninviting for exploring. However, we had opted to stay in the Parador, so luxury awaited us!
