... pathway. Stops became more and more frequent and more than once I wondered if I would end up on the "rescue mule" that was bringing up the rear of our procession. On the plus side we were treated to majestic views, stunning orchids and bromeliads, as well as the novelty of having horses and mules laden with materials pass by along the narrow track.
