You would have liked it. It wasn't as soft and cushiony as the areas we were in where you could lay back like a hammock but... it had its own appeal.

In the morning it was in the low 40's. It warmed to the upper 50's then maybe as high as the low 60's by mid afternoon but the minute the sun began to set the temps began to drop. Another I don't know but intensely beautiful. It reminded me of a Calliandra.

Oooo I like those! Sounds like the perfect hiking weather traversing those hills and ravines.

Funny little story... you can't see it in that photo but there's another log on the ground directly behind the major chunk obstructing the boardwalk. You really need to stay on the boardwalk all the time so I stuck my leg over the top of it and got wedged and went down down down to kiss the boardwalk all the while holding my camera over my head so it didn't hit the ground. Not a scratch on me!!! I thought for sure I'd end up with a bruise on my chin but I must have fallen just right.

You did good. You saved all those wonderful photos for us you poor thing.
I would do the same thing.... The camera comes way before the bod.
