Hello Steemian Friends!
How's everyone keeping today? It's the start of the first of two long weekends in a row here in Thailand. Streets and roads leaving Bangkok were jammed even at 20:00, but we're back home and ready to write you the next part of our Throwback Thursday's edition in Ethiopia. Yes, it has been two weeks since our last Throwback Thursday as this time last week we were settling into our hostel in Singapore, so there was no time to write a post.
In the last part, we talked about our first day hiking through Bale Mountains National Park. After a long first day of hiking, we settled down watching the sunset on a big rock near our campsite. Once the sun had disappeared we made a move to eat dinner next to our fire as it was getting very very cold.
We woke up the next morning to the sounds of the horses moving around as well as the hyrax shrieks from the mountains behind us. The hustle and bustle from the Park was about to start. Becca's father was already up boiling some water for breakfast and tea. Once everyone was up it was time to start packing up the tents and bags again and get going for the next part of the hike to the next campsite.
After a long day of hiking, going up and down hills, taking off our layers of clothes one by one to our shorts and t-shirts as the day got hotter, we finally arrived at our second spot for camping! This part of the hike was 25Km long!!!! No wonder we were all exhausted!
We set up camp, refreshed our faces in the cool water, and watched the sun set once again over the Park. Dinner was very simple, I think we had instant noodles, so we just needed to heat water! We were all very tired and achy so we were eager to get into bed and rest, hence it was an early night!
The next morning we woke up once again to the sound of Becca's dad making tea on the fire, as well as all the horses walking in and amongst our tents on their way to drink water from the stream near us. It was a really nice start to the morning and quite relaxing to watch.
This concludes the story about our hike through Bale Mountains National Park plateau environment!
We hope you have enjoyed reading it, it has given us some really nice flashbacks from our memories and time spent hiking! Next week we will write about another hike in a different section of the Park. Watch this space!
Stay Classy Steamians!
