That was a great sleep and a nice breakfast prepared to order but first I selected from here
So the hike begins it is 14 km total and goes slightly uphill all the time.....I found that with the altitude 6500 feet the same as San Miguel and the fact I have been sitting a lot lately and eating very well that my fitness level had dropped so I needed more rest stops but the views were so amazing(how many times do i use that word?)
It was a steady climb and the weather was hot but I had lots to drink and the views just continued to get better
A great spot for lunch about a 70 foot drop!!
I now started the decent and who should I meet but the English couple who took my photo slowly coming to the chain ladder.....they told me they were not going to climb that but just enjoy the scenery..nothing special right?
I talked a bit to them and then had done some of the Camino the same time as me two years ago..so I showed them my Camino tattoo and then smiled and I wished them good luck.....why am I telling you this ?? Tis because she is my hero she is 81 years young!!!!!
On my travels I have done some incredible hikes and in no particular order I think of...

Millford Track, New Zealand
Victoria Falls, Zambia
Springbook Nat Park Australia
Lake District, England
Waterfall hike Nova Scotia, Canada
Cinque Terre, Italy
Waterfall hike Iceland

Plitvic lakes, Croatia
and of course my lovely home town hike in San Miguel...today's hike ranks right up there with these...
I move on tomorrow to the top of the falls for another hike and I have an air bnb in a small town about 260 km away!!!!
