After a day of injuries (day 4) including being covered from head to toe by mosquito’s… in places you are sure were covered by clothing… being attacked by thorny plants… falling down cliffs looking for geo caches… and Chris hurting his back pretty good… we were back in business around lunch time today but still dealing with the cuts, bites, and pain. Cierra looks the worst because she has about six bites on her face. Poor baby! I am thinking of ways to avoid a bathing suit at all costs for the remainder of the trip due to numerous leg bites. We bought cots today; should take care of the mattress problem (which I’m convinced is what caused Chris’ back problem). We haven’t even attempted the geo cache of death yet! More war wounds to come???
Yes, today we did:
exploring via kayak
skipped enough rocks to cause carpal tunnel
picked out our campsite for next time
visited Hot Springs National Park – the water is seriously HOT!
Cierra paddled all by herself because she “wants to show Mommy and Daddy so they can buy her a pink kayak.”
Tomorrow we have 3 of my uncles visiting!
