What I did
Trips through farmland and mountains necessitate maps with good detail, correct city names, and accurate scale. Ours lacked all 3 of these things. Nevertheless, knowing the name of the final destination is usually sufficient to get you headed in the right general direction. When you start heading up a hill and your ears begin to pop due to elevation, its a good bet that you are on the right track. If nothing else, the abrupt drop in temperature is a welcome change from the heat, humidity, and smog of the surrounding lowlands.
After some steep ascents, an unwanted detour to a volcano museum, and a lost pair of Cody-sunglasses (retrieved), we made it to the park entrance for the viewpoint
Cody came up with a list, during our descent, of appropriate footwear for hiking from best to worst:
"Hiking boots, five-finger shoes, running shoes, sneakers, Teva sandals, crocs, barefeet, high heels, flip-flops."
We were wearing flip-flops.
Onto our final stop.
