On the way down we had a beautiful sunset…
Final Thoughts: This hike was pretty short, probably about 1km up and 1km down with moderate difficulty. We didn’t get the best views from the top, but on the way back down, we had an awesome view of the sunset over mountains in the distance, with the sea just to the left. For a busy and hectic Tuesday teaching, Elicia and I breathed in fresh air, relaxed, and watched the sunset, and it was truly amazing!
