The good news is there were shuttles that took you back down the mountain. The bad is that Owen didn't want to pay for this service. This meant we needed to 'find a ride' (a.k.a. hitchhike).

I wish we had a week to see all of it and take some of the many hikes. We sat outside again this evening and the Hummingbird made a brief appearance.
