Bucket List No. 42 - Go Volcano Boarding

When I found out that I was getting an opportunity to go to Nicaragua, I knew that one thing I wanted to try was volcano boarding (also known as ash boarding). CNN had an article back in 2011 titled Thrill Seeker's Bucket List: 50 Experiences to Try Before You Die  where volcano boarding was ranked 2nd. So clearly this was an opportunity I could not miss. 

So what exactly does volcano boarding entail? We hiked up the volcano Cerro Negro, the youngest volcano in Central America near León, Nicaragua. As fun as the actual boarding was, the hike was something else. It was unlike anything I've ever done and if you ever find yourself in Nicaragua, I highly recommend it!

Bear Mountain

The other day I had the joy of hanging out with my youth group since most of them had spring break. We decided to hike Bear Mountain and it was awesome. I loved every moment of it. It was so much fun and the weather was great. It took us a little while but we eventually made it to the top and the view was so worth it! I can't wait to do it again! Next time it'll be something a bit bigger....mmm...maybe  the Rockies? :)
