We headed for the summit which should have been another hour hike. Well, I got distracted by this guy wearing Crocs to hike a mountain and took a wrong turn. I knew something was wrong since we were going downhill and not up but thought that it must me a temporary valley thing before we headed up again. We walked 30 minutes before hitting the next trail head and having to turn around. We wasted an hour. Oops. (Good thing Nathan and I had already decided that we weren't allowed to get upset about weather or things that have already happened. This went into the second category and Nathan was very nice about it. It was my mistake and I was the one throwing a fit because I was hungry. Darn salad.) Once we made it back to the screw up point we headed the right way and made it to stop number two on our hike, Los Picachos. We'd hiked for two hours for a sucky view, clouds, and it began to pour down rain. I know it rains in the rainforest but this was insane. I was glad I had my camera in a waterproof case and my semi-waterproof backpack. It was getting dark quickly and I was envisioning spending the night outside, Man Vs. Wild style. If you know me, you'll know that I get very cranky when I'm hungry or in an extremely unpleasant situation. I started complaining at this point and Nathan thought it was hilarious.
Me: This is like working out on the stairmaster in the rain!
Me: This is like every other CCC trail but with rain!
Nathan: (More laughing) Is this going on your blog?
We booked it down the mountain to the car as fast as we could and missed the summit. Nathan was bummed but knew that it would have just been clouds anyway.
This is what I found in the hotel upon our wet return. I found it very amusing. It was the second time people though we were married.
Yes, I picked out his clothes.
I know I ordered Italian (Chicken Carbonara) but it was AMAZING! One of the best things I've ever eaten in my entire life!
Nathan's ribs and shrimp. Also very tasty.
Embarrassing, yes. Funny, maybe. I claimed to be done with dinner but I couldn't help myself. I had to stuff in one more HUGE bite.
Our first of three flan. Much thicker than the ones here. More like a cheesecake which I really liked but Nathan likes it a little more 'wiggly.'
