Enjoying the view of the mountain range 🗻

The sketchy drive up was well worth it.

-For those that want to know. A vehicle with High clearance is a must to avoid bottoming out at the cross ditches. -20km down Chilliwack lake road and then a left to Mt. Cheam trail head (Sign is marked)
-Drive about 5minutes to the first fork in the road where you take a right up for Mt. Cheam. Then you begin about a 35min climb along an old service road. This is the hardest part. -There is a parking lot at the top. Once there the trail is easily marked. Follow along.
-Moderate hiking level as it is steep and has switch backs. Getting near the peak it becomes more technical.

Every once in a while you need to adventure on a whim.

As my last day in Costa Rica comes to an end, I am sad I will no longer be able to turn my back on the camera and look out at the ocean.
.
This experience has been amazing. I have learned alot and am excited to come home with a fresh perspective and greater understanding.

I won't be parting mountains anytime soon, but aslong as I can climb them that is okay.

Here I am taking a selfie, while Irazú volcano (1km diameter) and its beautiful blue lagoon (300m deep) are behind me awaiting my gaze.

First day beach hopping was a success. Just remember that suncreen also needs to applied to your legs if you are a fellow gringo like me.

Our first hike of spring consisted of scrambling down a rockface, travelling past a bear den and sliding on the frozen rocks to reach the base of Brandywine Falls .
.
.
.
*Trail Guide*
For those interested... We found an easier way down the falls than using the rope as suggested online.
You can follow the trail sign for "Whistler Bungee Jump". It will travel a hundred meters or so parallel to the train tracks before cutting into the forest.
You will then go furthee into the forest along a made gravel trail until you reach a creek. At this point the trail goes left.
However, going right will lead you to the base of the cliff. At this point you will encounter orange trail markers. 
This way you can avoid having to scale down the side of the cliff.

My attempt to look Canadian. (Apparently the LG 6 does not have a Canadian flag emoji. 1/10, would not recommend)
