Scouting Arecibo, San Sebastion, and Rincon with Dee and Ryder. Scaling rocks at Gozalandia waterfalls to get the 18mm behind the water. This trip was inspired by our location manager Kuka. We are trying to figure out if western PR is feasible on our tight schedule. Going to the sinkhole and caves tomorrow hoping to find the surreal land formations promised by the Internet and my imagination.
