El Faro Lighthouse
On Thursday, January 10th, we hiked up to the El Faro lighthouse, the second tallest lighthouse in the world! On most days the view from the top is spectacular, but on Thursday it was foggy. It took us almost an hour by bus to get there, then the entire hike up and down took around an hour and a quarter. The hike can be very steep at times. There are sweeping switchbacks of gravel path that make the climb a little easier, but the girls favored the steep, rock climbing paths and in addition there is a set of 341 uneven stairs.
