We had a map, a tank full of gas, and a dream to find a waterfall. We never made it, but this time the journey really was the destination. We arrived home 6 hours after we left with a sore butt, no waterfall, and lots of fun memories.within minutes of leaving I was hit by this large and pretty beetle-it hurt so bad right on my neck! big ol meanie
a perfect day for a drive
Jarrett and Conner out to explore the world
it was soooo hot! we could not wait to jump into the waterfall, we stopped for a cold drink
this cute little boy was checking us out while we bought our drinks
about 2 hours in we came to this sign-25km to waterfall and 2 km to hot spring, we decided to take a little detour to check out the hot springs. We were hoping it would be cool enough for us to swim in
not a chance! we would have lost a foot if we had fell into this hot spring!
it smelled like sulphur and it was so beautiful
flowing streams of scalding hot water
boiling water at some partshot water fallpraying mantisat this point we were totally over heated. the day was so hot and then the steaming hot springs, we went down stream hoping the water would cool off, but it was just as scalding 1 km down river
After getting back on the road we continued on to the water fall. It took us over 1 hour to go 20 km. The road was bumpy dirt and full of potholes. We finally came across a little stream and jumped in, calling it a day. We talked to a guy on the way back down that said the waterfall was dried up right now-hehe.
we finally made it back home over 6 hours after we left. This is Conner on the way home-it was a good day
