To pick up where I left off we had an easy day of rafting and relaxing. The rafting was a one and half hour float down the river with a few fairly tame rapids thrown in. Michell was disappointed it wasn't a little more rough and tumble, while I thought it was fun. We did get wet so were grateful for the wetsuits and windbreaker jackets they supplied.

The final 200m ascent was tough with the altitude effects kicking in, but we made it in good time before heading downhill to camp. With weary legs after the downhill we slept very well ahead of day 3. Day 3, we left at 7am for our longest day, 16km. The first 200m were up and then it was up and down past a couple of ...
