Camino de Santiago: A Celebration in Pictures!

The allure of walking the Camino de Santiago (Way of Saint James) was, and still remains, for me indescribable.  And its undeniable pull ultimately became irresistible… as I realized my dream of doing so in the Spring of 2013, walking [most of] the classic route called the Camino Francés, five hundred miles from Saint Jean Pied-du-Port, France to Santiago de Compostela, Spain.

I walked the Camino for several reasons… to prove that I was still vital at age fifty-two, to enjoy an epic walking meditation, to make time to reflect deeply on the meaning and direction of my life, to enjoy the camaraderie of my fellow pilgrims, and to welcome anything else that might come my way.

This photo essay is my humble attempt to convey that privileged experience in all of its wondrous dimensions… fun, delicious, tragic, joyous, arduous, timeless, and sublime.  I offer it with the most profound gratitude as a celebration of a uniquely sacred place, my fellow pilgrims, and all those things that make life worth living. Buen Camino!
