Pala-U Waterfall in Kaeng Krachan National Park, Thailand

It was a bit harder than we thought but like any adventure, you never know what you will see around the next bend.  Here is our trip to Pala-U Waterfall.

The park has wild elephants and they have to put up signs on the road leading to the entrance because every year stupid foreigners flash their lights and honk their horns at them.  Not a very smart thing to do because the elephants get really pissed and attack cars and motorcycles.  This results in people getting killed.   We were not in the right area to see any and while I would have loved to get a picture, I was not so sure I would have felt safe. 

 Well, there are goats over the next rise!

 I really love this picture with the shadows and the face in the rock 

The bridges would have felt less secure if the water were roaring beneath them.

 I looked up to see a monk coming from the forest

 Our friends Bob and Peggy.  These are the size of the boulders we had to hike over.

 The rope  had butterflies on it and we found out that this is what we had to hold on to during our climb.

Vince took some nice shots of the waterfall.  

 While we were hiking out we heard some noise in the trees and looked up to see a troupe of wild monkeys come down for a drink and to cross the water.

 There were thousands of butterflies everywhere.  I decided to hold my hand out to see if this would happen.  It stayed there for nearly 5 minutes.

 While we were hiking, Bob turned around from where he was sitting to see this monk. 

 I was watching the monkeys and turned around to see these monks.  They were so quiet I didn't even know they were there.  I have no idea where they came from because there is nothing here but jungle. and they were on their way down to the park entrance.

We saw this giant Ficus tree

 On the way out, we had to watch where we were stepping to make sure we had good footing.

 We felt pretty proud of ourselves!

 We saw this temple and had to check it out.

 We found this area for a picnic just outside the park. 

 This is my favorite!  Vince always gets some great shots.
