This morning we past the Cruz de Ferro (The Iron Cross) where many people leave a memento as a symbol of leaving their burdon. We then climbed over the highest peak on the Camino, Collado de los Antenas at 1515 m (4970 ft) then descended to Molinaseca at (590 m). Fell on my bum twice in the descent. This was another great day. Met many interesting pilgrims, stopped a the smallest town on the Camino, Majarín, and stayed in a very modern albergue in Molinaseca.  #Camino, #Spain, #Travel…
