Days 1 and 2

We have survived our first 48K of walking. And yes, it was much harder than we expected. But also so much more stunning than expected. It took us almost 9 hrs. to cross the Pyrenees to Roncavellas. Here’s a few pics from the Basque Country.. We saw sheep, horses, cattle, and even pigs roaming wild!  While the 4000 ft ascent was tough (cardio and legs!), the 1300 ft descent was perhaps harder (our quads were shaking and it was slick in places).  The weather was perfecto. And we loved  the birch forests.
