Yesterday, at the recommendation of a bunch of you guys, Matt and I took a trip out to the rainforest to go hiking!
The first stop on our tour was this cool observation tower.
There were gorgeous views of the rainforest and the ocean from the top!
Matt’s Droid phone can take panoramic photos — so cool, right?
And then it was time to head into the rainforest itself! We hiked the La Mina Falls trail in El Yunque National Forest.
The rainforest was beautiful — the only other rainforest I’ve been in was when I studied abroad in Australia in 2003! We actually had orientation in the rainforest when we first arrived — it was really cool. Yesterday’s trip brought back some fun memories of that
It was about a 1.25 mile hike to the waterfall and swimming pool. The water was really cold but we were ready for it after the hike!
My camera didn’t enjoy the glaring sunshine as much as we did, boo. I just brought my point and shoot since I was worried about getting my DSLR wet!
It was a great way to spend the day
Oh and in other news, I wouldn’t recommend getting into a fight with this tree:
Today is our last day here in San Juan, Puerto Rico Sadness! We leave tomorrow a.m. — I’ll be back later with a recap of our last day!
