Saddle up

It was well worth the trip to see San Ramon waterfall on Maderas volcano, and have a refreshing shower under the pure water.

I could have trekked up the mountain in the heat with little shade or hired a horse. Yep I chose the latter ($10 and hour for horse and guide) making it a 3.5 hour trip instead of all day. We still had a wee walk 15 minutes or so where the horses couldn’t go.

Some horses started following us part way up, with one waiting until we came back from the waterfall and following us back down the  mountain.

My guide had the small horse and I got the tall one.
