Yesterday, Aaron and I went to El Yunque National Park, Puerto Rico's rainforest, and hiked to La Mina Waterfall. On the way to the trailhead, we climbed to the top of a lookout tower that had an amazing view of the ocean and forest. There are only 98 steps to climb and it is worth it!
We chose the trailhead that traveled down to the falls and it was a simple hike. Once we arrived to the falls, there were lots of people swimming in the natural pools and enjoying the cool breeze. We chose not to swim since the water was "cold". Hiking up the mountain was much more difficult than going down. Luckily, the trails are really nice and most of the hike is concrete steps or concrete paths. The steps were the difficult part :)
On the way out of El Yunque, I had to snap a picture of my niece's Flat Stanley to record the adventure. I wonder what he will get into next?
