We all needed a good nights rest after our day yesterday. While our hike is all down hill today, we’re afraid that it may end up being harder than it sounds. Hiking uphill is taxing cardio wise but going downhill is just plain hard on the body.

After waking up this morning and grabbing breakfast we were back to the trail. Thankfully our day today was much shorter and faster than yesterday. However, we were all hurting at this point and when we hit camp we were so happy to get off our feet. We were also looking forward to visiting the hot springs, a much-anticipated excursion. So after lunch we packed up and piled into a van to head out to the hot springs.

Unfortunately, things didn’t go as planned and we never made it to the springs. Part of the road had washed out from the amount of rain in the area. We could have walked across the washed out road but it required a little bit of climbing and we didn’t want to have to do it in the dark on our way back.

So it was back to our camp to rest for the night. Now it’s time for a nap while we wait for dinner.

Here’s a look at our fun from the day…
