One last hiking adventure...

We have had the pleasure of going on some adventurous and visually stunning hikes while living here in Papua New Guinea.
Teddy and I were glad to have one last hike with our friends the Zimmerman's and the Daff's before we leave the country... we also brought along a visiting PA Student, Kait, and the newest missionary to Kudjip, Sheena.    
This last adventure did not disappoint!  We all piled into the cruiser and drove about 30 minutes into the bush, where we parked the car at a school and set off on our hike.  The hike began out on a hillside and in the sunshine, but then descended down to a creek bed that we walked along/in.  Our final destination was a magnificent waterfall!  We scrambled to the top to swim in a natural pool, and had a lovely picnic lunch.  
As always, it was a wonderful time with friends and a great opportunity to marvel at God's beautiful creation.
