At the last set of falls, we walked up a short trail to lush, green surroundings before deciding to step it up a notch and climb up another steep trail to the top of the mountain. About 40 minutes later, we were rewarded with an amazing view from our perch, looking out at green cliffs surrounding us from atop the summit. The other cool thing Mother Nature ...
