Mae A  AP reporter on sabbatical hiking the Camino de Santiago in Spain beginning May 3

Thunderstorm clouds my last night in Leon as I leave the Camino, appropriate mood

Well week 3 did not go so well I turned 40 and got injured. My foot started hurting Saturday and I've been in Leon since Sunday. Still figuring out next steps. Today I could finally put weight on my heel so I finally got to see the cathedral, very different than the one in Burgos. Missing my hiking buddies!

Real Madrid wins La Liga for the first time in 5 years fun to watch in Spain

Developed some foot problems :( 😢 so staying in Leon a few days for recuperation

Camino mystery. Something has made the new leaves on the trees next to the Camino for miles and miles turn brown. It seems like they sprouted new leaves but then those withered. Some trees still have a few green leaves at the top. And leaves beside the trees are much bigger than the ones on the trees. What happened! Any plant biologist theories?

Lots of walking by the road today

Entering Sahagun. This is one of several purported midpoints of the Camino

Pretty Rio Carrion after (or between) the rain

The rain in Spain falls mainly on the plain
