Even though I have never actually experienced childbirth myself, I imagine it is something similar to Cavagrande. The hike back up was so dreadful I began to re-evaluate my entire life and all the moments leading up to that very one. I just remember thinking, “How the hell has this been done so many times before?, How do people live through this to tell their story?, I hate my body right now, and I will never ever do this again.” Of course, now that it’s all said and done, what I took away from it all was so amazing that somehow, it has clouded my judgement and I would totally do it all over again! (Maybe not right away though)
The way down was pretty easy, just make sure to wear sunscreen, bug spray, proper shoes, and obviously, bring water. We passed a lady walking in flip-flops, whyyy?!
What we found at the bottom was one of the most beautiful places I have ever seen. It was like something out of a story book. The water was so blue and you could see right to the bottom. It was much colder than I expected it to be but well worth the swim. I would have never forgiven myself if I had come all that way to not jump in!
The scenery looking up was so stunning I don’t think I could ever get the image out of my head.
Beware, the hike back up is equivalent to 78 flights of stairs or 10,000 steps according to my iphone health app. I saw a father carrying his kid on his back the entire way. I have never been so impressed!
