Local residents to present travel “Trekking the Camino de Santiago” Aug. 11 at Central Library
Local residents Frank and Teresa Coons will describe their quest to complete the Camino de Santiago, a well-known trek over the Pyrenees from southern France into Basque Spain and beyond, in a presentation scheduled for 6:30 p.m. Monday, Aug. 11, at the Mesa County Libraries Central Library, Fifth Street and Grand Avenue.
Their journey along the 500-mile route started in September 2013 with a 100-mile walk over the Pyrenees. They completed the next 200 miles in June 2014 and plan to finish the journey in 2015, ending at the Cathedral in Santiago, Spain. Their presentation, titled “Trekking the Camino de Santiago – A Pilgrim’s Tale,” will cover the first 300 miles of the Camino de Santiago, focusing on sights, sounds, and people along the way.
The presentation is open to the public at no charge.
