Stretching from the French Pyrenees to Spain's northwest corner, El Camino de Santiago, or the Way of St. James, dates back to the Middle Ages as one of most important pilgrimages in Christendom. Today, it is seeing a resurgence of interest as hikers, bikers, and equestrians from around the world retrace it for recreational, historical, and spiritual reasons, or just the challenge of walking weeks across a foreign land. Bob Guenther hiked a section of it last year with his family and will share his experiences.
Bob Guenther serves as chair of the AMC's Conservation Committee and is a former chair of the AMC's Connecticut chapter. Over the course of his career, he has worked as a journalist, including ten years at The Wall Street Journal, and as head of corporate communications for BASF, Polaroid, and Webster Bank. He's hiked on three continents, but his favorite hike remains traversing the Presidential Range in the White Mountains. Bob and his wife, Sherry, have three grown children and reside in Hartford, Conn.
