Santa Cruz Trek Day 3 of 4

October 6, 2005 - Day 8

Once again I got up at sunrise. I slept a little better, but still not too well. I had a biscuit with some jelly and butter for breakfast and prepared to leave. After discussing the plan for the rest of the trip, four of the six of us decided to do the rest of the trip today. Only Carolina and I stayed back. It didn't make sense for me to rush things since I´m not on a time limit and I paid for four days, so I might as well make the most of it. We said our goodbyes and the four of them left about thirty minutes before the rest of us to try to make it to the end before the last bus left.

Gregorio, Carolina, and I walked leisurely since it would only be four hours to the next campsite. Once again, there was beautiful scenery the entire way. We passed another big lagoon and more mountains. The walk was flat almost the whole time. We got to camp and relaxed for the rest of the afternoon. Unfortunately, it rained for several hours after we got to camp, so there wasn't much to do. For the most part, we had been lucky in avoiding the rain up till that point.

This was the warmest night of the trip so far. It was also the most relaxing. I went to bed early and got lots of sleep in preparation for the last day of the trip.
