Crossing the Chagres

Henry Morgan, and all other pirates and gold runners of his day, took the Chagres river up from the Caribbean as far as they could until heading overland on the Camino de las Cruces to reach the Pacific.  Retracing this route on unicycles we’ll have to cross water a few times.  Today I set up our last crossing with the Embera Indians who will take us across the Chagres to the trail head for the Camino de las Cruces.  Elvira said her father could take us across in a big motorized cayuco.
