South Dakota Sunset

The parched prairie remains vibrant along this hillside near Gary, South Dakota. We work hard yet still find time to play hard…

Window light casts its shadow upon this young woman, as it did her mother and grandmother,  as she reflects upon the history contained within these walls.  The old wooden ironing board leans against the wall holding memories,  laughter and tears of generations past.

 

The prairie runs deep…

The prairie can be harsh yet gentle… all at the same time.

Together is a beautiful place to be.

These words written in 1893 are still pertinent today.

End of this Journey… until next time.

The journey only requires you to put one foot in front of the other …again and again and again. If you can find  beauty every step of the way, you are truly blessed.

An early start to a  thirty kilometer walk today with random conversations and  historic villages along the way. I arrive at the steps reaching the bridge into Logrono catching the tourist information office gentleman at the top just as he is about ready to close. The excellent map he gives me makes my journey to tonight’s lodging a piece of cake allowing me time to pay it forward and help another young pilgrim find the municipal albergue in time for her to get a bed.

Seems like I’m just getting my trail legs and this Camino has ended. The departure process now begins with a bus, three planes, my very first Uber ride until my little red car takes me all the way back to the border of Minnesota/South Dakota.

It may be time to go home, but it’s never too early to start planning the next adventure… I am truly blessed.
