We started from the village of Faial da Terra. When we parked the car in the most northern point of the village we were welcomed by a very impertinent car-park attendant-rooster which we called Hans-Peter. Already the first steps surrounded by vast greens made an impression on us. The further we stepped into the valley the more rainforest-like it became. On our way we met wild chicken who weren’t shy at all. One even jumped on my hand and claimed to be petted.
Above all the first part of the hike along the river is not always easy. I was happy for boots and poles.
