My first hike on Guam

March 19, 2011

So John and I took the trail to Pågat yesterday with a bunch of anthropology students from the university. It was pretty awesome, and we’re excited to do more hiking here. I didn’t take any pictures, but here is a link with a lot of information and images. It’s a beautiful, impressive place. There are remnants of an ancient village, and past the village, the ocean is this electric turquoise color I’ve never seen before. The experience was kind of humbling, though, too: hiking on Guam is A LOT DIFFERENT from hiking in California. The jungle is thick and it’s easy to get lost, so you need a guide. The weather is…ahem…challenging, and there are lots of bugs who want to drink your blood. Much of the trail is steep and very slippery, but there are ropes to hold onto in the most difficult sections.

At the bottom of the trail, there’s a cave, with a pool of cold fresh water where you can swim. If you like that kind of thing. Personally, I don’t find caves that interesting. No offense.
