How High Can We Go?

We had a little running around to do after church today and took some local friends with us. One of them told us about a "hill with a blue lake" nearby one of our stops, so we detoured for a bit. This turned out to be a rock quarry. It's so special because the lakes and "swimming holes" here are too dirty to really swim in, but this was beautiful bluish-green water. I suspect it had something to do with the 150-ft depth and the rocky bottom. We carefully hiked up and down the really high cliffs surrounding the water. Since the girls were with us, each of the fellas took turns walking in front or behind of us gals to keep us from sliding into infinity. I was the only one who came close, but Fredy caught my wrist before I skidded too far. The cliffs were so high and had a spectacular 360* view. We were thankful that Saul went to the trouble to bring the terere along, once we spent about an hour climbing in the 110* heat. Click for pictures...
