|Arrival at the trail head|
After meeting our guides, we set off to a deeper section of the forest. The start of the terrain was flat but a little rocky which is quite manageable. Trees and shrubs surrounded us. Hues of green were strong and instantly, I felt even more cheerful, this is home!
In about 20 minutes, our feet had to get wet as we crossed our first river. Water was cool and quite tempting to dip in.
After resting, we proceeded to my favorite part of the hike, this daunting, steep section. I felt nervous as I ascended, clung to roots and made sure my feet were planted firmly on a rock or branch before I advanced. Fortunately, everyone in the group got to the top without any problems.
After another 30 minutes of slow pace hiking (we took the sweet time to take photos – it was just hard not to with all the trees and insects we saw), we arrived at the first major fall, Twin Falls. Navigating our bodies on twisted tree branches and rocks, it felt like we walked in a special spot where magical creatures converge.
