Our jungle trek in the Cameron Highlands of Malaysia, searching for a giant Rafflesia.
Torrential rains had turned everything into rivers of red mud. We all had to get out and walk…. Barefoot hiking; the mud sucked the shoes right off your feet! Marvin and Nick, our intrepid guides. All that slogging through mud had a reward at the end… the largest flower in the world, about four feet across. Supposedly it is a type of fungus or mushroom, and reeks of rotten meat in order to attract flies. Checking out the damage at the end of the hike. We made it back in one muddy piece!
