After a short climb we encountered the bottom of the ...

... on the island some of which are over 3,000 years old. We saw many small waterfalls that were obviously temporary and only there due to the significant rainfall. We also go to see our first monkeys and deer that are native to the island. The old trees were epic. We went on the shorter walk as it was getting later than we cared for.
