TR and Photos from Pico Bonito (Honduras)

Postby Scott P » Fri Jan 09, 2009 7:02 pm

December 31: Pico Bonito

Shaylee, Kessler, Kimberly and I did a really nice hike in the Parque Nacional de Pico Bonito though the thick rainforest. We also rode the zip lines part way down and across the river.

January 1: Cascada El Bujeco

We went to bed early New Year's Eve, but we started the new year with a bang. Kimberly, Kessler, Shaylee and I climbed to the Cascada El Bujeco in the Parque Nacional Pico Bonito.

We took a local guide and crossed the Rio Cangrejal before reaching the climbing trail to the falls. In retrospect the river crossing was hazardous with kids and I wasn’t happy after I found out we could have taken the bridge a few kms upriver (presumably the guide thought we would just give up and wouldn’t go all the way to the falls?). The climbers trail to the falls was a real challenge with the kids, but other than the river crossing was fun. After reaching the falls (quite an accomplishment via the route we took up) we descended by the standard route through on the National Park trail and the bridge across the river. It was a fairly good trail and less rugged than the route we took up.

I'm slow and fat. Unfortunately, those are my good qualities.

Wow, that is some beautiful scenery.. Reminds me of the hike my family took when I was younger to the Hanakapi'ai Falls on the Na Pali Coast in Kauai.

I second the "wow" these are nice shots, thanks for Sharing. I've been there and was not aware of how nice the area would be in the backcountry!
