So after meeting a few people I met in one of the pilgrimage forums online for lunch today in St. Jean Pied de Port we headed up the mountain to Orrison where I am spending the night. Wow! What a workout. But the views were spectacular! Worth every bit of the effort! A nice cold beer after 31/2 hours walking up the steepest mountain I've ever seen. A nice shower and did the laundry and a very nice dinner. Off to bed! Prayers for all. Pray for me too!
