At the top of the mountain lies Mt. Britton tower. I really wanted to see what the view was like from up there and decided I was going to hike to the top. Problem was, I had a major footwear malfunction and had to do the hike barefoot. I don't regret my decision to still hike to the top, but I think if I did it again I would prefer to have shoes! Its a mostly rock trail all the way to the top.

This waterfall was the destination. It was absolutely beautiful. Directly behind me was another large drop, with a view of the ocean off in the distance. I only took the one photo, because these rocks were so slippery I was afraid of going over the edge. All in all it was a great hike!

This is a panorama I made from the top of the tower. If you look closely, in the center of the photo you can see the ocean. It was beautiful up there with the clouds hanging low over the Loquillo Mountains.

Love love love this water.

This is a reconstructed tall ship that was anchored in the marina. I believe it is now used for movies.
