It's Always An Adventure

This roadside stop was very special. The man had built his house up on the cliff, and he's working on a store up there as well. He sold sugarcane bark, freshly cut flowers, had a pot of soup cooking on rocks and fresh spring water pouring out of the rocks.

It truly doesn't get much better than this. Maybe a rum punch in my hand would eek it up a notch or two, but then I'd probably slip on the rocks even more than I did while making my way to the cold springs after this one.

There were two magnificent falls next to each other but without a wide-angle lens on our camera, we had to take two shots. This is the one of the left. Ed hiked a long way up to an upper pool while Tyson and I lounged in the hot springs and Judith went who-knows-where to meet foreigners from all around the world. That Judith!

Our excellent guide, Bobby. I can't remember his given name, not that it really matters.

You see why I say it's worth it. Lovely.

Don't look too closely or you'll see me sweating from head to toe. That's Tyson and Judith behind me.

Luna waiting for us to catch up. She had boundless energy, unlike her mama who found the hike one of the more difficult. It reminds me of hiking with our brother-in-law Landon who is notorious for taking us on a hike in Maine with a "moderate" difficulty level, only to be told later by same that "Maybe it was more on the extreme side of moderate" or "maybe it was actually one of those listed as strenuous". This one was advertised as a 45 minute hike one way but turned out to be about 90 down and a little less returning. But so worth the effort, as was every single "moderate" hike in Maine with Landon.
