The View Was Worth the Mud
This photo was taken at the Cerro Dantas Wildlife Refuge. It shows the water running downstream from a beautiful waterfall that was behind me. The hike to reach the area was about 3 hours long and had some slippery, muddy paths just before the finish line. At one point I took a wrong step and my foot went ankle deep in mud. But the laughs and conversation with my friends as well as this gorgeous view made it completely worth while. My only regret is not having brought my bathing suit and a towel because the water was so clear and cool and I would have loved to jump in!
