Viana to Navarrete - May 15
Logrono is the capital of La Roija and so is quite a large city with a population of 197,000.
Finding my way through Logrono was not easy as the way was not well marked in the core of the City, but locals were really good at helping me out when I took a wrong turn or was unsure which way to go. Once I was outside of the core, the way was a rather pleasant walking path, with benches along the way, for several kilometres all the way to an embalse (a reservoir) and park.
It must be my lucky day for there was another rainbow in the direction I came from today. I ate such a large lunch, I will just snack for dinner and after posting this blog, get an early night. Internet is really good here at the municipal Albergue, so I am able to upload lots of photos.
I am not sure how far I will go tomorrow, Najera is only 16.5 km ( with a bit of a peak to climb at Alto San Anton) but the next stopping point at Azofra has a fewer number of available beds in the albergues as it is a less popular stopping point. A vendor along the road mentioned that that he is seeing about 200 pilgrims a day along the route. There are well over 200 beds available in Najera but only 60 in Azofra as you can see from the chart below.
