Just recently, my friends and I visited one of the three most wettest place on earth. Our goal was to reach the wall and back before sun down. Keep in mind, we all did our homework before attempting this hike.
More than an hour of 4X4'n before reaching the actual trailhead, exploring another trail, muddy areas that's balls-deep, rock-hopping, stream crossing, rope climbing, times of pouring rain is what we needed during this trek. It really tested our mental and physical abilities. Even the slightest doubt would drastically change everything for the worse.
Regrouping at times, supporting, laughter, carrying a positive attitude and praying to the Big Man upstairs made it an unreal/awesome experience. I'm grateful to have shared this experience with such great friends and that we all made it back out safely, mission accomplished. Thank you Lord for keeping us safe, protecting us from any harm and danger during a weekend trip away from our family and friends.
