Today was the highlight of the Camino. La Cruz de Ferro (Iron Cross) was the highlight of the Camino. I cannot express the feelings when approaching or touching the pole with the cross. It is a magical majestic spot about 5000 feet above sea level. A simple cross on a big weathered pole. It was erected in the early 1500's to symbolize the Camino Way struggles. The personal struggles in the world. It is very difficult to describe but you can feel the weight of all the people before you and with you and it is over whelming. To symbolize your struggle you are to bring a rock, a symbol of your Camino/Life journey and leave it at the cross. Each of us leave something. Concerns/troubles/wishes and prayer. Shortly after leaving I read several notations on poles and one that I remember is " hope for happiness in my eyes and a prayer in my heart.

We wish for happiness for all.
