The Coast of Misery

It’s actually just called ‘The Basque Coast”, but I like my name for it better. Our hike in Durango hadn’t been super long, just super vertical. When we woke up we felt fine, but later we discovered that our leg muscles were trashed. And of course we had planned a coastal hike right after we […]
