I Pray for You

There is a tradition on the Camino about prayer and rocks. What you are supposed to do is to pick up a rock and give it a prayer and carry it for a while. Then you deposit it on a marker or some other appropriate spot. So we passed a lot of markers today with lots and lots of small rocks on them. To imagine that each one of these little rocks carried a prayer was a bit overwhelming at times.

So I got with the program and started to deposit a few of my own. Today I prayed for all those that helped support me to get here. You all have been the best. May you all have happy and fulfilling lives.

Today we walked about 14 miles over about eight hours. Stopped for coffee in the morning, fresh fruit and baguets for lunch, and a coke on the mountain top. Now this is the kind of hiking I have been dreaming about. Here are some shots from the day for you to enjoy.
