đź“· Days 4-5 on the Le Puy Camino

These days of walking were pretty—but not easy. Each day I was walking close to 20 miles with lots of elevation change.

More cool French cars. Don't ask me about that creature on the wall 'cause I don't know. Some strange village art exhibit apparently.

I walked over the Aubrac region a high, mostly treeless area with sweeping views. I got lucky on the weather because it is often notoriously bad. Made for some great walking.

Very pretty section of pine forests and fields and big clouds.

Here's a typical group of walkers on this route. Most are over fifty and European—French speaking at that. I feel down right young around these parts and it is hard finding people to have a conversation with sometimes.

It's inspiring to see older folks out here walking quite rugged trails. Lucky for me walking is something you can do your whole life long!
