Week 2 Update

Thanks again for supporting our trip! We've made it safely back to the States and here is our second update for you, written by Charles:

June 30

Woke up early to tour the lovely countryside north of Ho, which started with a stop at a monkey conservation area that had been established with the help of a
Canadian to create a sustainable source of income for the local village and to preserve the monkey population. We all took turn feeding the monkeys bananas and hearing about the local history from the guide. Next, we stopped at War Plant Mountain, which is the tallest mountain in West Africa. Every member of the team made it up the 2905 foot peak, despite the steepness of the hill and how crowded it was. Afterward, we went to a beautiful waterfall, Wli Falls, that was another short hike. It was the most pristine waterfall that I have seen and we were told it was also a “highest in West Africa”. Making it back to Ho, we were all exhausted and happy with the day of exploration.
