July 5-10, 2009: So much to gather up!

I have spent the whole week gathering up everything I am going to need for my trip. New backpack, new hiking boots, new rubber boots, sleeping bag…who knew it would be such an adventure. The place that I am going to in Ecuador is a lodge in the Santa Lucia Cloud Forest Reserve in the Western Andes. I will have to pack everything in a backpack that will be strapped to a mule and carried up the mountain to the lodge. What have I gotten myself into now…I just hope there are not many snakes!
