Conquering the Mountain
Peering over the dashboard, I dive down the extreme decline of the mountain "road." There is a cliff to my left, so I am hugging the other side that has a wall of mud. "It's okay if you want to take out the sideview mirror," my friend Tim tells me, "Just don't take us over the edge."
The powers that be have been working on a road out into the rain forest. Yesterday we decided to climb the mountain with our 4x4 truck so we didn’t have as far to hike. I got to drive! I forded small rivers, got stuck in the mud (above!) for a while, and certainly got my heart rate up, but boy was it fun! :D Thanks to all of you who give - it was through your generosity that we were supplied with this cool truck to make it over the mountain. :)
