Rio Puero Gorge
ACA Canyon Rating – this is a play area not an expedition – only bite off what you can chew…
There is good water flow, some really tuff climbs and rappels… plus abundant beautiful hiking
My friends spoof as tho they are falling over 50’ high Echo Falls on the Rito Resumidero
And below… 3 ugly bears hang out in a cave at Lichen Falls (my three sons)
