10-18-2015 Sunday Funday

Our friends, Will and Leslie, were up for an adventure, so we planned a hike up to Antelope Falls in Mayflower Bocawina
National Park.

It has been rainy recently, so we wondered how wet and muddy the trail would be.

It turned out to not be bad at all.  Leslie even commented how well done the trail was because it shed water quickly.

Leslie enjoyed the cool water of the swimming pool.  It's a fitting reward for the hike because you are always completely 
covered in sweat by the time you get to the top.

Will climbed up above the falls and said he found about six other smaller swimming pools going on up the creek.

It started to rain while we were at the swimming pool, and we decided it was time to head back down anyway.

Cara got a picture of Will taking a picture of Leslie.

Normally we see lizards and leaf-cutter ants on the trail, but because it has been rainy we saw
toads this time.

This guy blended in pretty well and Cara only saw him because he moved.

We stopped in for drinks at the restaurant at Bocawina Rainforest Resort & Adventures while it rained, and we decided to go
ziplining anyway.

We checked out the lovely scenery around the restaurant.

Love the natural planters - palm fronds and coconut shells!

The rainy day made for a beautiful misty mountain scene as we headed out.

Will and Eric gearing up

Eric coming in hot - the wet ropes made us go much faster, which was loads of fun!!!

Will heading out on a long run

Will coming in on the longest line (2300 feet) - we all had a great time!

That night we went to Driftwood Beach Bar & Pizza Shack for dinner.  The path to the bathroom was flooded, so we had to
walk on beer crates to get there.

Driftwood makes all kinds of good food (not just pizza) - Eric loved his Fish & Chips.
