The ride in the old Russian dump truck up the steep road to the hiking trail of Fidel’s rebel camp was both scary and beautiful. It was only scary because we weren’t really feeling safe in a very old Russian vehicle. The road was so steep that the driver didn’t want to come to a stop for fear the truck would start rolling backward, but I saw this mountain peaking in and out of the clouds and just had to take the photo. He reluctantly stopped the truck. While I set up my camera in the bed of the dump truck so I would be high enough to see over the vegetation, Niki jumped out and began taking photos of us in the truck. At that moment she was probably the safest person around us! If the truck started rolling we’d just have to wave goodbye.
