We spent most of the morning walking though the suburbs and industial district of Leon. Corrie and I have decided these are definitely our least favorite terrain on the Camino. After breakfast we opted for an alternative Camino route that took us away from the main highway for the rest of the day. It adds a few km to the hike so there are far fewer pilgrims on this route despite a reputation for better scenery. I think there are only two other couples in our albergue tonight.
Leon cathedral lit up last night after dinner.

Once we cleared the city it kind of felt like we were walking through NM the rest of the morning...
