Over the weekend we signed up for a pair of hikes for March. One will take us to one of the highest (and safest) points in Nicaragua1 — another challenging volcano hike! — and another calmer hike through the rainforest and along a series of waterfalls. I admit a little bit of trepidation over the first hike mostly because of the heat we’ll be walking through (and walking down young volcanos is always a bit slippery), but I’m also super excited summit Volcan Concepcion and take photos!

  1. The highest point is Pico Mogoton but the hike is made moderately dangerous by the presence of landmines that were laid in the war with the contras.
