We pedaled past tiny houses with children playing on the front steps. We heard the thundering sound of water falling down a sheer drop, and a beautiful waterfall cutting through the thick vegetation came into view. We hid our bikes in some bushes, took off our shoes and climbed as far as we could up the rocks at
