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.
