One of my favorite memories from this trip has to be when we went to the Blue Mountains. This is where one of the most popular brands of coffee beans are grown. When we first got there we were talked to about coffee and its origin and how it is the second most drank drink in the world (coming after water). We then made our way up the mountain on about a twenty minute hike. This was a change of pace compared to what we had been doing on the trip the previous days which was nice. On the way up we had a chance to look at the coffee beans growing and why the damp environment they grow in is so important for success. Once we got to the top the view was breathtaking. Although it was raining that didn’t stop us from taking pictures. There was a beautiful rainbow overlooking the mountains making the hike up the mountain even more worth it. This was one of my favorite of many memories on this trip.
