My Camino Day 2

My Camino day 2 Orrison to Roncesvalles (19 km)

I crossed the Pyrenees mountains (French and Spanish border) to Roncesvalles today. What a beautiful walk! This route is known for steep uphills and downhills through the mountains. It was drizzling and foggy all morning hours while climbing up. Once I reached the top ridge above the clouds I could finally see the sunshine that created an unbelievably beautiful and  picturesque scenery. The clouds and moisture were temporary once you rise above them! I need to say, it was not an easy walk when the visibility is about 5 meters. However when I hiked up through it, there was a wonderful gift waiting for me: the beauty of God’s creation. 

We all have storms in our lives, which continuously beat against us. We are hard pressed and depressed. However at the end of the storm we face this moment and  something beautiful welcome us with a bright sunshine. It will beat our expectations. Buen Camino!
