Camino Salvado 2014

Embrace the future with courage and hope
Embrace the future with courage and hope

It’s been a week of showers and sunshine for the first Camino group of 2014 but it certainly hasn’t dampened their spirits! John Bell who has “shepherded”  the pilgrims along The Way reports that it’s been a wonderful experience for them all. Today they walk along Old Plains Road in the sunshine and into New Norcia.

With Holy Cross College and students from Nagle College Geraldton also using the Trail the experience that is the Pilgrim Trail will  spread out into the community and echo what a wonderful resource it is for all Australians.

At a meeting with DPaW on Friday we’ve added a link to their Fire Alert page so that all walkers can check to make sure that there are no “Burn offs” in the section they intend to walk through. So please do check it out before you start your walk.

We are also going to add some basic safety directions for walkers should the unexpected happen, so keep an eye out for that soon.

Otherwise, with the recent rain and now the sunshine, it’s a great time to experience the wonders and heritage that lie along the Pilgrim Trail.

Trail Activity increases

It’s that glorious time of year when the sun shines, the wild flowers are starting to look good and the birds are making a real racket when the sun comes up! Yep: it’s time to take a walk in the country and that’s what the Camino Salvado group from St Jodpehs are doing on Sunday with their first walk of the year along the Pilgrim trail.

Holy Cross School from Ellenbrook are also using sections of the Trail for their year groups so that by the time the students have graduated from the College they will have experience the whole Pilgrim Trail. Their itinery for this year is:

They will have students on the following sections of the track on 23 and 24  August

  • Bells Rapids to Peace Be Still (Year 12)
  • Subiaco to Guildford (Year 11)
  • Guildford to Bells (Year  8)

We wish them all a wonderful experience and hope that they spread the word on what a great adventure the Trail is.
