Long story short: We went to help plant trees to help prevent erosion and the destruction of our coral reefs. We weren't mentally prepared for the hike we didn't expect and the weather. The hike was steep and slippery. We were halfway to the planting site when it started to rain, but we kept going until the lightning and thunder started. It was too close for us to really move. Either direction would've taken us higher and closer to being struck. So we hit the ground. When it cleared up a bit we had to head back. So we didn't get to plant any trees. Maybe we'll go back when they start doing the carabao rides and install the zip line.
Moral of the story: Please don't be a lazy hunter and start fires!!!
We look so happy in the pics because we SURVIVED!
