Lamentable noticia. Si bien el camino en general no exige riesgo por sus senderos hay que tener precaución siempre. Otro sitio de riesgo son los carriles paralelos a las carreteras.Hay tramos donde hay que tener cuatro ojos.

Es una de las etapas más duras del Camino, aún en condiciones climáticas óptimas. Imagino que en invierno es mucho más difícil andar por estos sitios. QEPD.

La realidad copia la ficción Recordad que The Way, la película americana, comienza con un sucedido semejante, un peregrino que deja la vida más o menos por esos mismos parajes. ¡Lagarto, lagarto!
