Montana de Caleque Waterfall

Gracias, Honduras

What an exceptional day! We left about 7:00 this morning. Caught a tuck-tuck (taxi made out of a 3 wheeler) to the visitors center and then started hiking. We left the bottom of the mountain from the visitors center at 8:00. It took us 2 1/2 hours to climb to the "cascada" waterfall. We didn't even make it all of the way. We went as far as we dared to go without knowing the area. We ran out of well marked trail so we rested (much needed rest!) ate a bite, took some beautiful pictures, and then headed back down the trail. We were discussing what it would be like if you weren't in some kind of physical shape. We would have died I think!!!!! It was so steep. The biggest part of time we were on what they call "switchback heaven". If it weren't for those switchbacks, I don't know if it would be possible to hike up in places. The hike was definately worth the work that it took to get there. Aftr dinner is over it will be time for bed and then we are leaving tomorrow morning back to Copan Ruinas so we can cross the border into Guademala then on to Rio Dulce. Will cach the site up when we get to another place with internet.

We are from Fruita, Colorado. We want to widen our circle of friends in the world. Our ideas are great and hopefully we can put them to use as we travel. We are looking forward to seeing the wonders that the world has to offer and create new ones of our own!
