Social Summit: Pilgrims come together for Summit County Camino
June 16, 2015
From Thursday, June 4, through Sunday, June 7, in Breckenridge, three women whose lives were connected by the Camino de Santiago came together for a series of events aiming to educate others about the pilgrims' path through presentations, film screenings and shared experiences.
The events were hosted by Gwen Edwards, owner of Yellow Arrow Coffee, and Karin Litzmann, owner of the Speakeasy Theater, with special guest Annie O'Neil, an author, director and film producer whose new film with co-director Jessica Lewis, "Phil's Camino," was the beneficiary of funds raised by the weekend's events.
The Camino de Santiago, or way of St. James, is a network of routes that begin in various places across Europe, with all trails leading to Santiago de Compostela, a cathedral in northwest Spain that houses the tomb of St. James.
