Camino de Santiago: A Celebration in Images!


The indescribable allure of walking the Camino de Santiago (Way of Saint James) eventually became irresistible… and 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: 1) to prove that I was still vital at age fifty-two, 2) to enjoy an epic walking meditation, 3) to make time to reflect deeply on the meaning and direction of my life, 4) to enjoy the camaraderie of my fellow pilgrims, and 5) 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!


  1. Enjoyed your pictures! So many familiar vignettes, remembered from my walk August-October 2015. Now back to the pages on blues vamps and other chord progressions!

    1. Thanks so much for checking out one of my “other” projects, Teresa. It’s so nice to meet someone who knows the Camino so intimately.
      All the best to you in travels, music, and life! Buen camino!
