Way Markers, Why Markers?


Charlie. I decided that I would take a photo of most of the way markers we pass. Most because I wanted to avoid the cult of the completist. I thought I could combine them into movies when we get back and that is still the plan.

I love the yellow arrows along the way and the small concrete Camino posts. The variety is amazing.

I am finding that recording them gives me an excuse to document the trail. There is a photo every one to five minutes of walking.

So I am making an album of the markers for each day with names like “Marker 9-24” for today.

These albums are not for the faint of heart. Some (or many) my find them boring. Those people should skip them when they see the “Marker” marker.

Here they come for the last eight days in reverse order.
