3-26-2017 trip to waterfall at Tiger Fern in Cockscomb Basin Wildlife Sanctuary

We left at about 9 and headed about 30 minutes away to Cockscomb Basin.  There is a lot to do there including several waterfalls, lots of hikes, and a tubing river.  This day we did the Tiger Fern Trail.
 
 
A lot of people come to Hopkins to go Birding
 
 
There is knowledgeable guy and a nice little gift shop and information center there
 
 
This is what the area looks like
 
 
I love the signs in Belize
 
 
The Audubon society is very active in Belize and has several properties
 
 
There are tons of trails to explore
 
 
The start of the Tiger Fern Trail
 
 
At the top of the hill there is a campsite and from here you go down again to the waterfall
 
 
This is the lower pool
 
This is the upper pool
 
 
The water was cold
 
 
The mists made us all comfortable and we just chilled out for several hours
Our friends ned and dia showed up and quickly decided to cool down
 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Cheryl got a splinter on the way out
 
 
beautiful flowers were on the trail
 
 
beautiful panoramas
 
 
to the right you see that big peak....that is Victoria Peak.....people love to take 3-4 days to hike from where we started to the top of the distant mountain.
 
 
There was a nice little shelter there
 
 
We got home and decided to go to Virge Kitchen this is the bbq pork steak

  2. The edges are dull and tips are extremely sharp, great starter throwing knives, I'm training my youngest with em now go to this web-site. The carrying sheath is a plus, holds all 3 securely and loops over a belt perfectly. Highly recommend, especially for the price!
