Rio de Janeiro... Hiking to Pedra Bonita
I met up with some friends to hike to Pedra Bonita (Pretty Rock).
Once again, it was a large group.
After about a half hour of uphill hiking we reached the top and gathered together.
So, I went off on my own to explore a little.
And then the clouds miraculously cleared. The nearby mountain called Pedra Gavea was exposed.
To the left I could see the city of Rio.
Below me I could see the neighborhood of Leblon.
And to the right I could see the neighborhood of Barra de Tijuca.
Pedra Bonita is also a launching spot for hang gliders and parasailers. If you look closely you can see one in the clouds.
One last group photo before heading down the mountain.
