Using walking poles on the Camino de Santiago

I have used walking poles (hiking poles) in Tasmania on 2 bushwalks, and found them very useful on the uneven South Coast and Port Davey tracks. However I have not used them to their best advantage as I have on the Camino. If you read Petes Pole Pages you will find a good description for the best use of walking poles. I have found it reduces the load on your feet, and helps you ascend hills, and make descents safer.

      Hey there Janet, glad you’re enjoying our travels. You’re right, we are indeed enjoying every minute of it. I must get Greg to take a photo of my feet in their current state. It looks like I’m wearing white ankle socks, and the rest of my legs are turning brown.
