Camino Day 1, to Roncesvalles

A great day. We walked about 17 miles with incredible elevations. We were above the clouds. The scenery was beyond what I imagined. What a challenge to hike over the mountains but what a reward to conclude with the Song of Roland.

There was a pilgrim Mass.  After the post communion prayer they invited the pilgrims to come to the altar for a blessing. Then they dimmed the lights and focused on Mary and sang the Salve Regina.
