I could look back and see Madrid most of the way.
And then I could look forward and see where I was going. Those mountains in the far distance, that's for the next two days walk.
This is a waymarker, the best I saw today. Most of the time the mark was just a painted yellow arrow, on a pole, on a building, on the street if paved.
In a hotel tonight. Tomorrow is 27 kms to Manzanares El Real.
