1. A hike when children become unwilling to continue without dragging their feet and telling you how miserable they feel as many times at they can is never quick.
2. A hike which cuts through the jungle "somewhere around here" and meets the main road "somewhere up there", is not quick.
3. A hike which infringes on lunch time feels as if it will never end.
And so, just like that, our 3(ish-in theory) mile loop became close to a three hour outing.

The refreshing water and beautiful views were enjoyed prior to the jungle portion of the trek which was also filled with beautiful views, thousands of spiders, thick mud, evasive trails, and eventually a long walk down a hot asphalt road.
