The yellow arrow

The one constant on the trail is the hand painted yellow arrow. It’s the mark that keeps you on the trail through villages, big cities, wide plains and forests. There are the official markers that change as you change provinces but you learn to see the yellow ones and know you going in the right direction. One of the unsung comforts that guides don’t necessarily list as essential.
Today was the last full day on the trail so it’s a nice close to see the last marker for the day  in Amenal at the end of a tree covered avenue with walls that seem ageless.

  1. Enoy the little time you have left … life is too short and nothing changed back here.

    Remember your challenge. To date have not seen any evidence of that being completed :-).
