We figured we'd see a few more people in the afternoon because many people come to Basaseachi Falls National Park from the city of Chihuahua. And we did see maybe a dozen other people heading down as we were heading back up.
First, we had to hike up the 600 meters of paved road just to get to the trailhead going back down.
That's where we're headed...the base of Mexico's highest waterfall.
Yep, the trail was pretty steep at times.
Ruth, on the trail down.
We're about half way now.
Downhill, every step of the way.
Kevin, at the base of the falls!

Can you see Ruth beside that big boulder? It's funny, this picture looks crooked, but it's not. The wind sometimes blows the waterfall in different directions.
Always smiling. Well, not always. But most of the time!
We had fun crawling over the boulders and rocks at the bottom of the falls. But we still had quite a bit to hike! We wanted to take a different route back up so that we could go to the top of the falls themselves and look down!
The trail actually brought us above the top of the falls.
Yikes. Looking down.
The actual top of the waterfalls. Looking down on those huge boulders. They don't look so huge from up here!

What a great day we had. In fact, it was pretty much perfect!
