Cerro de Puma  Sucess!

Thought it would be fun to sign this summit log as Puerto Ricans head to the polls today to decide it they want Puerto Rico to become the 51st state. Previous statehood votes have failed but this time it could be different.

Took the standard route up to the summit from the main parking area during a 3-day island getaway specifically for tagging this potential future state highpoint. My Dad was going to accompany me but he got sick the day before the trip and cancelled. Wound up being a solo gig. Summit day was mostly overcast with a brief spell of rain, but I still had a fun time exploring.

Viva Puerto Rico!

Quick walk up  Sucess!

Not much for views but still a nice walk in the mist with Kerri. Can't say I would recommend the road for anything but walking though. The plant life on top is fairly novel too, besides lizards for fauna.

The views!  Sucess!

Not gonna lie, drove most of the way up. Poor rental car. But the views were great!

nice drive up  Sucess!

Driving from one side of the island to the other, so took a quick detour to the top of Puerto Rico. Shared the summit with several little lizards.

Re: Beat the Rain

Glad you made it up there! I imagine a trip up the north side would involve some horrible bushwhacking. It is a big enough peak, it's too bad there's not a more challenging/pretty route to the top.

Morning Trip  Sucess!

Great sunrise, could see the Atlantic and the Caribbean. Very nice up in the hills there.

Tropical Highpointing  Sucess!

A little highpointing on my family beach vacation kept my spirits up!
