This horse arrived just in time to bouy the spirits of my daughter.
We had been climbing for about 5 hours when this horse walked up to us and visited for a moment before moving on. This was a nice boost before our 2 hour decent into Roncevaux (Roncesvalles).
This was the coldest day of the Camino. We packed light, (exept for my 7 pounds of camera gear) and we were wearing just about everything we had for this cold, and windy hike up and over the Pyrenees. Fortunately, it wasn't raining.
One of the things I never get tired of is hiking in the clouds. It's really cool to watch a cloud coming toward you and suddenly find yourself enveloped by it.
During the decent we pass through the area where Charlemagne suffered his defeat by the Basque tribes at the battle of Roncesvalles in 814.
