Waterfall Hike Today!

It was just 3 miles, but there were several hills and a lot of steps going down into the canyon to see the waterfall, but worth it to this childlike old man who is still in awe of such things! And I’ve been to this waterfall 4 other times before! But never get tired of it! 🙂

I always hesitate to include a selfie photo, but here I am as a nearly 84 year old survivor of cancer whose left eye can no longer blink and thus waters and fogs of my glasses :-), in a wide-brim hat and SPF-50 sunscreen that my Costa Rican doctors expect of me! 🙂 While I still enjoy all the little awesome things in life like this hike through a rainforest to a tropical waterfall! It’s my pura vida! 🙂 Here’s 5 photos, including one of the two sets of moss-covered steps I climbed down with my trekking pole and camera!

  1. It’s beautiful Charlie! I’m so happy you are able to enjoy some time in such a special place! Pura Vida!

    1. Thanks Bonnie! And yes, I am fortunate to spend time in places like that! Or fortunate to spend my final years in Costa Rica! Thanks Sis, for following the blog!

  2. I created an account just to be able to comment on how much joy you brought to me with your smiling face! My family and I will visit the Arenal Observatory Lodge next month and your review has made us even more excited. Thank you Charlie!

    1. Allison, Thank you for doing that! It is such comments and follow-ups that bring me joy with this blog. I am about finished with my series of posts on Arenal Observatory Lodge & Trails and happy to know that you and a couple here in Atenas will be going to Arenal Observatory this year because of the posts! 🙂 It is one of several “favorite places” in Costa Rica for me and I hope to continue returning there as long as I’m physically able! 🙂 I hope you will contact me with a report on your trip after you visit the Observatory Lodge & Trails, the best nature-focused lodge near La Fortuna! In my opinion. ~Charlie
