Day 15 - A hike in the jungle, beautiful waterfall

rain 77 °F

Headed out for a hike to waterfalls. It was raining hard in the a.m. when we left so expected a wet and muddy trek. And so it was, following helps to provide idea of hiking conditions.

Some of the flowers along the way.

On top of that I was carrying 250 lbs.; and that was before the pack (ha, ha). Probably equal to about 3 months of exercise for me, but somehow we made it and the hike was worth it. Shots along the way.

This is a natural slide worn away by the water of thousands of years. I wanted to give it a try but Patty said NO!

Finally reached the falls, so beautiful!! Best part was the sound (I'll add a few videos now).

Then on to see the monkeys in a nearby town calls Mishualli. First down to the beach area where they were running around. They were even in the park running around. Have some great videos and will post later.
