Unfortunately the picture doesn't do it justice, but it was amazing! It was a pretty tough hike, but I loved it! Our final destination was a giant waterfall that was freezing! ha but that of course didn't stop me or Rachel from getting soaked! After hanging out there for a while, almost falling off a giant boulder, and jammin out to Dimelo with Negro it was time to head back down the steep and I mean STEEP mountain side. Not only was it like a 70 degree angle but it was also muddy and dewey because of the clouds, which of course meant that me and Rachel had to start a competition as to how many times we could fall, and how dirty we could get! haha So we were off, sprinting down the mountain side, when Negro decided that it looked pretty fun and decided to join us! That, or he was afraid we were going to die! Either way it was a lot of fun. Unfortunately, Rachel won. But only because she bled! haha but running down the Andes mountains screaming Tarzan cries and going crazy with my girl Rach is definitely something I will always remember! We were wild women! haha
When we got down we went back to the cabin to snack on some food before taking another ten minute hike up to another giant waterfall that had a deep pool around it that you could jump into. Before leaving the cabin some of the girls were putting on their swim suits so they could jump in, I of course rationalized with myself and decided not to jump in because I was just getting over a cold, and jumping into frigid water wouldn't be the best idea... So much for that! I have never really been one to miss out on a good time so I ended up jumping in fully clothed!
It was definitely worth it!! haha
And luckily I had brought some things to change into when we got back so I didn't spend the whole drive home freezing!
It was such a perfect day, and I know that I will definitely come back sometime in the near future!
P.s. Remember when I was bragging about only having a cold and not having to wrap myself around the base of the toilet? Well I unfortunately have to swallow my words on that one. Yesterday, after the perfect day, when we got home I didn't feel very good, I thought I was just tired so I went to bed. About an hour later I found myself running to the bathroom. How fantastic! I guess it's all part of the experience though right?!
haha loves! xoxo.
