To the edge, and back, and to the edge again...
So it turns out that I woke up a bit sore from my 13.9 mile hike up and down the forts of San Juan.  No worries, I planned a drive across the Island to Ponce.  The trip is a pretty one, first lush tropical mountains, then arid plains (think Bakersfield Cali...
