What we leave behind

The state of Washington is blessed with some spectacular hiking opportunities and a wide variety of terrain. Sometimes in our rush to always be off to Spain or France to follow their ancient pilgrimage routes we forget just what beauty we leave at home. Here are some photos for those of you who have never visited the Pacific Northwest or Washington state, that will help explain what I mean.

Our Via de la Plata slideshow

Our last camino, the Via de la Plata, offered up a bundle of surprises, but still managed to capture our hearts, and strengthen our camino spirit. And, in the end, that was all we needed or could possibly have hoped for. Enjoy the show.
