From our casita we left on foot to El Cedro. The first part was tarmac but climbed steadily. We were looking for directions when a group of women helped us out and pointed the way. There must have been more tourists who went the wrong way. We walked up along a waterpipe. The distance to the end of the valley was getting shorter, but we weren't up that high yet. That could only mean one thing, the last part would be very steep. In the distance we saw a waterfall (the only waterfall on La Gomera containing water the whole year round).
Later we would cross the mountain next to this waterfall. At a campingsite we ate watercress soup. After a short break we continued our way through soil of different colours. It gave a nice effect on our hiking shoes (yellow, black, red and brown).
After a short while we entered a forrest where moss was growing on the trees. It was cool and damp. We walked further on a wide big road that would lead us to the nunspath. We were happy we brought our walkingsticks, because the cactuses and blackberries were growing over the track now and then. We wondered sometimes why we or other hikers didn't bring a machete.
After 8-9 hours we arrived back at our little house, where a long anticipated cold beer was waiting for us.
