Mother Falls, Father Falls

An easy hike through the rainforest leads to the twin falls (nicknamed the Mother and the Father) near the village of Trafalgar. A few pleasant surprises this morning: hot sulphur pools in which to to bathe alongside the path and being joined by Steve for the hike and other activities of the day. Thanks mon amour!
