Trail to Salamanca
"Whenever my path threads its way through towns and villages, as it has done in recent days as I've walked a section of the centuries-old Camino de Santiago, or Way of St James, it is often a reminder of the beauty and inherent goodness of people themselves."
Featured WILD10 ambassador
Estrella Morente: 
Flamenco Singer

"Freedom is the true meaning of wilderness...the world is wild...don't let anything or anybody take away freedom from the world."
