Taman Bukit Tawau 4

I cannot even remember where I went this morning. I eventually made it to the track to the hot springs. But most of these photos are from just behind my hostel. I did not have to walk very far.

It was so dark in the jungle that I had to use the flash. I do not like to use it, but I had to.
