Last Saturday we took a trip to Ankasa Nature Reserve with our friend from church, Wilson. It was a beautiful rainforest. We took a long hike through the forest. Sometimes we were walking on a nice path, and other times we were climbing under and over tree trunks. It was a beautiful day and area. We were a little disappointed because we went to find elephants and didn't see anything but a snake.
I took a million pictures because I couldn't believe how green it was.

This is a picture of the guide who took us through the forest. At first I was a little concerned about walking into a thick forest following a man holding a machete. I got used to the idea quickly and became even more comfortable when I realized that the primary purpose of the machete was to clear the path of spiderwebs and brush, and not to keep wildlife away!
