I Took My Afro: To El Yunque Rain Forest

What an exhilarating experience!

Happy Tuesday!

Yesterday I relaxed after a fun and exhilarating weekend!

Friday morning, friends and I hiked through the El Yunque (yoon-kay) rain forrest in Rio Grande, Puerto Rico. El Yunque is the only tropical rain forest in the U.S. National Forest system.  It’s really beautiful. To hike to the top would have taken 4 hours, so we opted to just see the waterfall, which was a 35 minute hike each way. Though tiring and at times a challenge, we made it to the top! I’m so proud of us! I also discovered that I really enjoy hiking; it’s a great workout and a great way to see the beauty in nature all around us.

I Took My Afro…Parasailing!

So, I took my afro parasailing…

When I was in Oahu, I went Parasailing

1085 Ala Moana Blvd #101, Honolulu, HI

(808) 591-1280
Prices vary by location but from what I’ve seen, they can range from $35 to $50, which is around what I paid.  (Disclaimer: I was able to get a discount for being associated with the military)

On a Scale of 1-10…I give this 5 afro puffs!!

Picture it: You and your group climbing aboard a boat, drive out to the ocean, and parasail over the ocean! The take off is about the most exciting event in parasailing; for the most part, it’s really a smooth ride.
