And still more walking
The day after the Los Chorros hike, we (son and I) drove esposo up to work, and thought we'd try the hike to their waterfalls, as esposo had promised me it was far, far easier than the hike we'd taken the previous day. To his credit, he was mostly telling the truth, though when we got to the final waterfall (El Silencio), there were, indeed, quite a few stairs to trek. He says that he didn't remember all of those stairs; but I say, yeah, right. Eh, we'd gone that far, what's a few more stairs. And yes, it was worth it.
The Big Mama waterfall, this one is El Silencio (The Silence). That's esposo and son in the foreground for height comparison.
This is a hummingbird nest just off of the main trail. Those fuzzy things are three little baby birds. So adorable! I have never seen such tiny, fuzzy, precious living things before in my life. The nest is about the size of a teacup, and the baby birds the size of your thumb.
